Tools required for disassembly: Phillips screwdriver, plastic tool such as a guitar plectrum or credit card.

Remove your back cover, battery, sim and memory card. Six screws need to be removed, circled below. LG Chocolate BL40 disassembly stage 1 Run something like a credit card around the join of the battery compartment to pry it away from the phone. LG Chocolate BL40 disassembly stage 2 With the battery compartment removed your phone should look like below. A screw, circled in white, needs to be removed. A ribbon connector, circled in red, needs to be disconnected. It attaches like a plug and socket. Just lever this up to unplug. Next, remove the music button, indicated by the arrow. The actual switch for the music button is held to the side of the phone with double sided tape. Carefully free the switch. You now need to remove the circuit board for the sim and memory card. To do so, pull it away from the phone. It's held in place with a plug and socket type connector so a little force is required. When you put the phone back together make sure you give the circuit board a firm push so that it fits back into the socket. LG Chocolate BL40 disassembly stage 3 With the circuit board for the sim and memory card removed your phone should look like below. Three more ribbon connectors need to be detached (circled). Again, each attaches like a plug and socket. Just lever each one away from the circuit board to unplug. You can then lift the second circuit board away from the phone. The camera button will probably come loose at this point (pictured to the left of the phone). LG Chocolate BL40 disassembly stage 4 With the second circuit board removed your phone should look like below. The camera, circled in red can now be removed. It's held in place with double sided tape and can simply be lifted away from the phone. Lever the speaker out from the point indicated. LG Chocolate BL40 disassembly stage 5 With the camera and speaker removed your phone should look like below. The next stage is to remove the screen. The first thing to do is apply some heat all around the front of the screen using a hot air gun or hair dryer. This will loosen the adhesive holding the screen in place. Do this for about a minute. Also apply some heat where the arrow indicates and then push your finger in that gap. This will raise the screen slightly on the other side. LG Chocolate BL40 disassembly stage 6 With the screen raised slightly you should be able to slide something thin and flat, like a credit card, all the way around the join of the screen and release it. Be careful along the left side of the screen as the ribbon cable from the screen is there and could be damaged. LG Chocolate BL40 disassembly stage 7 You should now have the screen removed. The touch screen and the LCD are bonded together and cannot be separated. Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly.
