To replace the display, unscrew two Philips screws from the bottom of the display, they are under two soft tabs that you have to remove from on top of them.
Use your fingernails or case opening tool to open the display cover.
Begin from the back and work towards the top, open the back and the sides, do not force open the front its held in place from there and you need to pull the plastic cover off looking at the picture below to the left
After the cover is off, you get to the back of the display, on the top you have a few speakers etc.Step 3.3.
From the bottom release the connector by carefully pulling the board upwards.Step 3.4.
From the top, use a flat screwdriver to get the speakers out of their slots so the circuit board with the display comes off.

Getting to the mainboard and keys.
Step 4. With the back cover, battery and sim card out. On the back of the phone, there 4 Philips screws. Marked with red dots.
Step 4.1. With the 4 small screws out, start using the case opener tool or your fingernails to release the plastic casing from the back of the phone. It is held in place similarly as the top of the phone in step 3. Begin from the sides and the bottom of the phone, the top is held in place and won't open until the sides and the bottom are lose, then you can disconnect the top part.
Step 4.2. As you release the back cover, on the side the up and down plastic key drops out remember to replace it properly when you assemble the phone.
Step 4.3. Disconnect the display cable, the mainboard is held in place by plastic clips on the top, carefully release the mainboard, you may break off a clip or two from the case, if that happens, no worries. The screws will still hold the casing together. the area is again marked in red.
