Step 1

Power down your LG G6 phone.
 
Step 2 (LG G6 SIM Card and MicroSD Card Tray)
 
Eject the SIM card and microSD card tray.
 
Step 3 (LG G6 Rear Glass Panel)
 
The LG G6 has an IP68 water-resistant rating so the rear glass panel is glued on solidly and is a tight fit within the metal body. Apply heat to soften the adhesive.
 
With the precision knife create enough space to insert a playing card.
 
Attack the adhesive and carefully dislodge the slightly curved rear glass panel from the chassis.
 
Step 4 (LG G6 Power Button with Fingerprint Reader)
 
Use the spudger to help free the LG G6 power button with fingerprint ID from the adhesive securing it to the rear panel.
 
Step 5 (LG G6 Antenna Assembly, NFC/Wireless Charging Panel, and Loudspeaker)
 
Remove the following 11 Phillips screws.
 
Pry up the lower antenna assembly that includes the loudspeaker.
 
Easily lift out the upper antenna assembly that is combined with the wafer-thin NFC and wireless charging panel.
 
Step 6 (LG G6 Battery)
 
Detach the battery connector from the motherboard.
 
Use the exposed plastic pull tab to peel the 3,300 milliampere-hour (mAh), 3.8-volt LG G6 battery off the adhesive securing it to the phone.
 
Step 7 (LG G6 Motherboard)
 
Disconnect the display and USB-C port cables from the bottom of the LG G6 motherboard and then carefully extract it from the phone.
 
Step 8 (LG G6 Front-Facing Camera and Dual Rear-Facing Cameras with Wide-Angle Lens)
 
Pluck off the 5-megapixel LG G6 front-facing selfie camera.
 
Flip the motherboard over and remove the LG G6 13-megapixel wide-angle lens rear camera followed by the 13-megapixel standard-angle lens rear camera.
 
Step 9 (LG G6 USB-C Charging/Syncing Port and Microphone Assembly)
 
With the spudger in hand, extract the USB Type-C connector and microphone assembly.
 
Step 10 (LG G6 Headphone Jack, Earpiece Speaker, and Vibrator)
 
The next components to surrender are the modular 3.5mm headphone jack, earpiece speaker, and spring-contact-connected vibrator.
 
Step 11 (LG G6 Display Assembly)
 
Begin to free the 5.7-inch, QHD LG G6 display assembly by using the heat gun to warm up the adhesive.
 
With the precision knife create enough space to insert a playing card. Use playing cards to attack the adhesive securing the full-vision display to the midframe.
 
Take your time and apply additional heat as needed.
 
Once you have sliced through the adhesive, be mindful of the display cable when decoupling the LG G6 screen from the frame.
