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

First remove your back cover, battery, sim and memory card. Next remove the six screws you can see, circled below.

On the left and right side of the phone are the camera and volume switches, indicated by the arrows. These are permanently connected to the circuit board but are stuck to the side of the housing with double sided tape. Carefully peel them away from the side of the housing, leaving them connected to the circuit board. Do the same with the power switch, indicated by the arrow at the top of the phone. Also remove the screw, circled below. LG Town GT350 disassembly stage 3 Next, lift the circuit board from right to left and you'll see it's connected to a ribbon cable, circled below.
