and spudger


Step 2   Open Up

Time to disassemble the screws on the button of the 5C ,you can find 2 super tiny Pentalobe screws ,they are totally different from the two screws we found in the iPhone 5.

Use a Pentalobe screwdriver to disassemble the Pentalobe screws, please do remeber to do it gently,or the screws can’t be used anymore


Step 3  —Check the Back Housing

The screws had been removed,and then you may need a small suction cup to dispatch the front panel assembly,please be caution when you  pull the suction cup as there are huge amount of flex cable and components on the back housing
