foam padding underneath display is significantly damaged and uneven
I was replacing the battery and made the mistake of going too far in and damaged the LCD. I’ve already replaced the battery and ordered a new display assembly but I noticed that the foam padding underneath the display (the one with the Xs) has peeled off significantly. A lot of it is stuck to display and other parts has been scratched or rubbed off, by me.
Does the foam padding have any function? Should I just remove the rest of the padding?
