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

Remove your back cover, stylus, battery, sim and memory card. Five screws need to be removed, circled below. LG GT500 disassembly stage 1 Now use something like a credit card to lever out the battery compartment then pry it away from the phone. LG GT500 disassembly stage 2 With the battery compartment removed your phone should look like below. A number of ribbon connectors (circled) need to be disconnected. Each attaches like a plug and socket. Just lever each one up to unplug. LG GT500 disassembly stage 3 You can now lift the circuit board away from the phone, like below. Another ribbon connector needs to be detached (circled). Again, this attaches like a plug and socket. Carefully lever it up to unplug. Also remove the two screws you can see. LG GT500 disassembly stage 4 Now pry the speaker cover from the phone. LG GT500 disassembly stage 5 You now need to move the orange ribbon cable to one side, as shown below. It's stuck down with double sided tape. Be careful when you peel this away from the back of the screen as it can tear if you rush. The volume and camera buttons will probably come loose at this point. Next, lever the screen out from the two circled points. LG GT500 disassembly stage 6 With the screen removed your phone should look like below. LG GT500 disassembly stage 7 To remove the screen from its frame, carefully slide a credit card underneath. This will release the double sided tape holding the screen in place. Below you can see the position of the double sided tape after the screen has been removed. You now have the LCD screen removed.
