    Have you damaged your Moto X? Well you're in luck! Our team at Repairs Universe have made a repair guide to assist in repairing your Moto X. This guide will help replace a cracked or broken screen on your new Moto X. It will give you an in depth walk through of how to replace the screen assembly and any critical internal components in need of replacement.

    This guide will help install the following Moto X parts:

    • Moto X LCD + Touch Screen Digitizer Assembly
    • Other Internal Components

    Essential Tools:

    • T4 Torx Screwdriver
    • Safe Open Pry Tool
    • Sim Card Removal Tool

    How to Fix a Motorola Moto X (Step-by-Step Guide) :

    • To start, use the sim card tray removal tool that is provided by Motorola, or a paper clip, and take out the sim card along with the sim card tray found on the side of the device.
    • Release the clips holding the back cover to the device using the pry tool.
    • During the completion of this step be cautious on the side of the device where the volume buttons are located, so as not to tear or rip the flex ribbon connector.
    • After you release the adhesive and the clips from the back cover, be careful while turning the device over to the left side, making sure to avoid damage to the flex ribbon connection located on the back cover.
    • Fully remove the back cover by releasing the jaw bone connection (shown in image below).

    See figure below for reference.

    • Use a T4 Torx Screwdriver to unscrew the (11) T4 screws that are highlighted and circled in RED in the image below.
    • Also note the metal spacer highlighted in GREEN below. Set the spacer to the side for later re-assembly.

    • Use the pry tool and cautiously release the clips in order to remove the upper housing, which holds the audio jack and loud speaker assembly. (Figure 3.1)
    • Make sure to be careful while handling the right side of the housing. It is held on with clips in the housing and can be rather flimsy. (Figure 3.2)
    • Remove the lower housing using the pry tool, while being careful not to damage any of the clips that hold it in place. (Figures 3.3 - 3.4)

    See figure below for reference.

    • With your pry tool release the battery connection. (Figure 4.1)
    • Release the jaw connection which will release the volume button flex cable. (Figure 4.2)
    • Release the pop connector for the ear speaker assembly and upper sensor. (Figure 4.3)
    • Flip over the motherboard which will expose the jaw-bone connection. Once you have done this you can release the connection and then remove the battery and motherboard. (Figure 4.4)

    • Cautiously remove the upper sensor assembly using the pry tool. Be aware that beneath the sensor is the ear speaker that is attached to the housing. (Figure 5.1)
    • Remove the metal clip that covers the volume button flex cable. (Figure 5.2)
    • Next, you should be able to easily take out the power and volume buttons. Then peel of the volume buttons using the pry tool or plastic tweezers. Be very careful not to tear or rip the ribbon cable. (Figure 5.3)
    • Place the volume flex ribbon cable and buttons to the side for later re-assembly. (Figure 5.4)

    See figure below for reference.

    On both sides of the screen assembly you will notice (7) small pins that are holding the screen assembly to the housing.

    • Take out the (7) pins by pushing them out from the inside of the housing. This can be done by using the Sim card removal tool that is provided by Motorola. (Figures 6.1 - 6.2)
    • Use your pry tool after the pins have been removed to release the grey housing from the screen assembly, making sure not to break off the clips holding the housing in place. (Figure 6.3)
    • Completely remove the housing now that it has been released from the screen assembly. (Figure 6.4)

    See figure below for reference.

    Lastly, to re-assemble the Moto X reverse the above steps and install a new LCD + Touch Screen assembly.
