Is it possible replace Face ID parts?
Touch ID does not work when iPhone's home button parts replaced. Face ID parts is same? What do you think of that?

"The TrueDepth camera system incorporates tamper-detection features. If tampering is detected, the system may be disabled for safety reasons."
It's official now, Apple acknowledges that the Face ID system is boobytrapped.
Don't know how exactly, however it may be due to security that the data does not get stolen, or safety, that exposed IR beam power stays below regulation limit when the device has been disassembled, or Apple just wants to mess with people.
I have done much testing on this manner. there are two pieces to this puzzle that make this an impossible task and a warning for future screen replacements. the two pieces that are matched (excuse my lack of true tech verbiage). the two pieces that are married together are the front camera module and the front ear piece flex from the lcd itself. any change to these two will render the face id useless. not a hard wipe or a complete reinstall of ios will fix this. treat these two pieces as careful as you would an home button on the i6 and up. make a mistake and there is no turning back. on a side note: turns out that every single lcd for iphone 8, 8+, and x has their own SPECIFIC brightness file stored inside the lcd chip itself. change the screen (either using a actual lcd off another device, replacing with oem product or aftermarket lcd and the brightness will always be dimmer. nothing you could do to fix that if you throw away and misplace the original screen that was there in the first place. they do sell machines that can copy the files from the original lcd so it can be transferred to new screen. but I have yet to see them work reliably.
my iphone Xs max has stopped working front camera but face ID still works fine
so i m thinking to replace only the front camera inside the face Id module by tearing down the module
so my question is will the face ID still work if i change only the front camera inside the module?
So it looks like the Front Camera is it’s own module in the TrueDepth assembly and also uses it’s own Flex Cable. Would it be possible to just replace the Camera and leave the IR Camera and Dot Projector alone and still retain FaceID functionality? Sure seems like it.
I work on iPhones all the time and I stopped at the iPhone 10 and above because they're hardware and software secure/ booby trapped. First the earpiece and front facing camera/IR illuminator is booby trapped. Second the LCD has firmware that can be checked and modified during any software update. I've had more than one iPhone 10 malfunction after proper LCD replacement including loss of sound from the earpiece and/or loudspeaker, the phone refuses to turn off (goes through the motions but returns to the home screen), loss of Face ID. After the replacement LCD was installed the phone worked fine. After the software was updated the phone started having problems. The LCD was an aftermarket/non-Apple inc. LCD
