Step 1

Power down your Google Pixel XL smartphone.
 
Step 2
 
Eject the Nano-SIM Card Tray.
 
Step 3 (Google Pixel XL Display Assembly)
 
The 5.5-inch Google Pixel XL 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 XL 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 extricate the Google Pixel XL display assembly.
 
Step 4 (Google Pixel XL Midframe)
 
Remove the following 9 T5 Torx screws.
 
The flexible Google Pixel XL midframe is secured by snug, press-fit notches. Use the precision knife and a triangle opening tool to release the clips and separate it from the rear case.
 
Step 5 (Google Pixel XL Battery)
 
Disconnect the Google Pixel XL battery cable from the motherboard.
 
Extract the interconnect cable.
 
Google provides a pull to remove battery tab, but it does not do its job.
 
Two strips of adhesive secure the HTC-made, 3,450 milliampere-hour, Google Pixel XL battery to the phone, with help from the triangle opening tool we set it free.
