To find out how to remove the screen assembely for an iPhone 3GS please go to Installing iPhone 3GS Display Assembly.

Removal of the original ribbon is a bit tricky. I use an automotive type of pick tool to remove the existing ribbon bracket. Read on for details on this repair.

NOTE: Many vendors online sell defective units, and these ribbons damage easily. When buying, buy a few because you may go through 3-4 before you get a good one.

For more info about me and my repairs, check out my blog. I do a lot of microsoldering repairs and what not.

Do the same with the other side and on the bottom of the bracket. This is held in with tension on fingers that clip into the screen midframe.

Thanks for this. I ruined the proximity sensor cable when I was repairing another part on my wife's phone (!)

Your guide helped me get her phone back in perfect working order.

Thanks!

I used this guide to replace my speaker + proximity cable since I damaged the cable when I replaced the iPhone battery. Worked like a charm and all is good again, thanks for this guide it helped me out big time!

I did not have a automotive pick, but I found that a straight pin from a sewing kit made it pretty easy to pop this module off.
