DISASSEMBLING PROCEDURE 
How to remove LCD & Touch Screen Assembly
Using the plastic opening tool, separate the rear panel and front panel that are secured by plastic clips.
Remove the rear panel from the unit.
Using the spudger, locate and unplug the battery connector from its socket. This will disconnect all power to the unit.
Utilizing the spudger, locate and pull up the LCD display data cable ribbon wire from its socket.
The touch screen/front panel ribbon cables are held in place with 2 FPC style connectors that have locking tabs. Unlock the tabs before trying to unplug the ribbon cables.
Locate the tab on the opposite side of where the cable is inserted into the lock. Using the spudger, flip the tab up 90 degrees to release the ribbon cables.
Once the locking tabs are flipped upward 90 degrees, slide the ribbon cables out from their connectors.
Locate and remove the fifteen small Phillips screws (#00) that secure the display assembly and the metal frame of the unit together. On the back of the display assembly is the LCD screen data cable. Transplant the cable from the old part to the replacement part. Separate the display assembly from the metal frame of the unit.
The data cable is also held in place by a locking socket similar to the touch screen/front panel.
Unlock the socket to release the ribbon cable and remove it from the display assembly. Install the cable on your replacement part by reversing the above instruction.
Using the heat gun or blow dryer, warm the plastic frame that surrounds the touch screen/front panel. This will soften the adhesive that binds these two pieces together.
Using the plastic opening tool and the plastic triangle opening tool, separate the LCD + touchscreen/front panel from the plastic frame. To help with the separation, apply more heat to the adhesive while you work around the frame.
The final product is the separated frame that is now ready for the new replacement part. Clean any additional glass or debris that is stuck to the existing adhesive before installing the replacement part.
How to remove Battery
Wedge the spudger between the battery and the front panel assembly to release the adhesive holding the battery secure.
Peel back the copper shielding covering the unit’s motherboard.
Continue the above process across the entire bottom of the battery to release the adhesive, and then remove the battery from the Nexus 7.
Using the spudger, push the speaker plug out of its socket.
How to remove Power Button, Power & Volume Buttons
Locate and remove the two small Phillips screws (#00) that secure the speaker assembly into the unit.
Remove the speaker assembly from the Nexus 7. The power and volume ribbon cable is held in place with a FPC style connector that has a locking tab.
Unlock the tab before trying to unplug the ribbon cable.
The tab on the opposite side of where the cable is inserted is the lock. Using the spudger, flip the tab up 90 degrees to release the ribbon cable.
Once the locking tab is flipped upward 90 degrees, slide the ribbon cable out from its connector.
Using the spudger, maneuver the buttons off of the framework of the unit.
Remove the power and volume buttons from the Nexus 7.
How to remove Front-Facing Camera
Using the spudger, release the FPC style lock from the dock port ribbon cable. Slide the cable out from its connector, peeling it back from the motherboard.
Locate and remove the seven small Phillips screws (#00) that secure the motherboard to the unit’s frame.
Separate the motherboard from the framework of the Nexus 7.
Using the spudger, pry up the front-facing camera to unplug it from its socket. Remove the front-facing camera from the Nexus 7.
