    • Caution: Pulling too vigorously or quickly on the suction cup could snap the back of the phone.

    • Once the adhesive has been adequately loosened, pull back slowly on the suction cup to remove the back panel of the phone.

    • The remaining adhesive should be strong enough to hold the phone together tightly upon reassembly. However, once opened the water resistance of your phone has been compromised.

    • Now that the back is removed, the battery is visible. You now have access to the battery and its connecting components.

    • With the plastic opening tool, gently remove the connector from the motherboard.

    • Use your fingers to peel the rest of the adhesive away from the phone.

    • With the plastic opening tool, carefully peel the white adhesive tape up from the bottom of the battery.

    • Use your fingers to peel back the rest of the adhesive tape away from the battery.

    I found this white adhesive tape just wrapped around the battery, so didn’t need to be removed

    • Slide the spudger firmly along the right side of the battery, loosening the adhesive between the casing and battery.

    • Flex cables run vertically down the phone underneath the battery and can be damaged easily. Make sure to only place the spudger in the indicated area.

    • Insert the spudger in the bottom-center to further loosen the adhesive. Carefully separate the battery from the phone by sliding the spudger vertically underneath the battery and prying up. This may take some time and work as the adhesive is very strong.

    it would be better to show in overlay red the two vertical cables that should not be touched; i damaged by 1 mm at the bottom one of the cable and the display is no longer working, even if can hear touch feedbacks and sound and now if if it charges well :o((

    if you do what is shown on the picture at step 7 (i did) you can still damage the cable right, because it deviates at the bottom towards the left !

    Why not start the instructions by saying "This battery replacement operation is too difficult unless you are highly experienced. You are very likely to damage the phone beyond repair. Sony prefer you to buy a new phone every 2 years when the battery fails"

    I agree that it would be better to overlay red the two vertical cables. Other than that, this step is rather time consuming, than complicated. Obviously you should be attentive to not damage the cables, but if you put moderate force during 3-4 minutes, the battery will finally separate from the case.

    Wondering if it’s safe to use hair dryer at this step.

    • Remove the one 3 mm screw with the Phillips #000 screwdriver. The screw is located at the top right corner of the motherboard. The motherboard is the green/silver circuit board at the top of the phone.

    • Using with the plastic opening tool, pry up firmly from the bottom and top of the plastic housing. The housing is black and located at the top right corner of the phone.

    • Release the charging cover, located on the right side of the phone at the top. This should cause the housing piece to pop out effortlessly.

    • Getting the black housing off of the phone can be tricky. Just keep prying and pulling up on the housing to get it out.

    • With the plastic opening tool, gently pry the red tape away from motherboard. This pop connector is located at the top right corner of the phone.

    • Using your fingers, gently pull up on the pop connector to remove the front camera. The front camera piece should lift out effortlessly.

Does the black housing over secondary camera has any connectors in it? Where does the antenna next to secondary camera attach itself to?
