Step 1

Power down your Google Pixel smartphone.
 
Step 2
 
Eject the Nano-SIM Card Tray.
 
Step 3 (Google Pixel Display Assembly)
 
The 5-inch Google Pixel AMOLED display assembly is glued on solidly and is a tight fit within the frame. Apply heat to soften the adhesive.
 
Use the precision knife to create enough space to insert a playing card.
 
With the playing card slice through the sticky adhesive and carefully decouple the Google Pixel screen from the phone.
 
The display assembly is still connected to the Google phone, so don’t try to remove it entirely just yet.
 
Remove the following 2 T5 Torx screws securing the bracket that covers the display cable.
 
With the bracket out of the way detach the cable from motherboard and free the Google Pixel display assembly.
 
Step 4 (Google Pixel Midframe)
 
Remove the following 9 T5 Torx screws.
 
The thin midframe is secured by snug, press-fit notches. Use the precision knife to release the clips and separate it from the rear case… but don’t remove it entirely just yet.
 
Lift up the Google Pixel midframe and detach the ribbon connector from the motherboard, then separate it from the phone.
 
Step 5 (Google Pixel Battery)
 
Spudge up the Google Pixel battery cable from the motherboard.
 
Detach and extract the interconnect cable.
 
Google teases us with what looks like a pull to remove battery tab, we pull it only to find out it is perforated on the bottom.
 
The HTC-made, 2,770 milliampere-hour, Google Pixel battery is adhered to the phone with two strips of adhesive, but with a little spudgering it is readily removed.
