Tools required for disassembly: Torx 5 screwdriver, plastic tool such as a guitar plectrum or credit card.

Remove the battery cover, battery and the two screws, circled below. Motorola RIZR Z10 disassembly stage 1 Unclip the microphone cover (just lever it out with your fingernail) to reveal two more screws. Remove these screws. Motorola RIZR Z10 disassembly stage 2 With the two screws removed in the above step you can remove the mic. Motorola RIZR Z10 disassembly stage 3 Lift the battery compartment away from the rest of the phone and you'll see it's attached by a ribbon. The ribbon connects like a plug and socket. Simply lever it away to unplug. Motorola RIZR Z10 disassembly stage 4 Your phone should now look like below. Motorola RIZR Z10 disassembly stage 5 Pull the green circuit board away from the phone and you'll see it's attached by another ribbon. Again, the ribbon connects like a plug and socket. Simply lever it away to unplug. Motorola RIZR Z10 disassembly stage 6 You now have access to two more ribbons (circled) which connect just like the others. Disconnect them. Motorola RIZR Z10 disassembly stage 7 You should now have the circuit board removed. Next remove the two black screws at the top of the phone, circled below. Motorola RIZR Z10 disassembly stage 8 Starting near the top of the phone, run your credit card around the join of the front cover, where the silver metal part meets it, to release the front cover. The front cover will still be attached at the bottom and needs to be pushed in the direction of the arrow. (Note that when you put the front cover back on you'll have to slide it on at the bottom first). The front cover will still be connected by a ribbon so you won't be able to remove it completely just yet. Motorola RIZR Z10 disassembly stage 9 You should be able to move the cover to the side slightly to access two screws, one on either side of the phone. Pay careful attention to these screws before removing them. They hold two brass coloured clips in place which will pop out when you remove the screws. Just make a mental note of their position for when you put the phone back together. Motorola RIZR Z10 disassembly stage 10 The front cover will be loose now. Below you can also see which way round the brass clips go. Motorola RIZR Z10 disassembly stage 11 You can now remove the ribbon which is attached to the top half of the phone/LCD screen (circled). Again it attaches like a plug and socket. Motorola RIZR Z10 disassembly stage 12 Detach the ribbon circled below. Again it attaches like a plug and socket. Motorola RIZR Z10 disassembly stage 13 You can now lift the ribbon shown below away from the phone. Motorola RIZR Z10 disassembly stage 14 Slide your plastic tool under the edge of the LCD screen to release it. It will be held in place lightly with double sided tape. Motorola RIZR Z10 disassembly stage 15 You should now have the LCD screen removed. Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly.
