We need to heat the surface of the back cover to approximately 70° C or 160° F. For this we use a heating mat or a hair dryer.

And after 5-7 minutes of heating we can move on to detaching the back cover. For this we use a thin plastic film, this is the protective film from the new display or a plastic film from the stationery store.

Step 18. Remove the battery

Finally, we move on to detaching the battery. Since we have a bunch of cables under the battery, we need to be as careful as possible not to damage these cables.

We check the battery by prying it up slightly and look at which side we will start to detach it. As we can see on one side of the battery is not really held firmly and this also means that there are cables close to the edge. There is no need to act forcefully, no need to bend the battery, no need to push the tool deep into the battery to avoid damaging the cables or the battery shell.

When we can we slip the plastic film under the battery behind the cables, into the middle part and carefully detach the adhesive base. It is better to use a plastic tool to hold the battery, thus creating a gap so it will be comfortable to work with the tool.

We can work on the both sides trying to lift the battery, if possible, and look on which side we have cables. And also with the help of plastic film try to detach the adhesive base. It is better not to press the battery with force so as not to damage the battery shell.

We don't use isopropyl alcohol or heat in this case because we don't know exactly what is under the battery so we don't damage anything. This approach takes more time, but it's relatively safe.
