When dismantling any phone, great care should be taken to ensure that no damage is caused to any of the parts. Rough handling may result in severe damage of many parts, and if proper anti-static procedures are not followed, electrostatic damage may result in any electronic component.
Before commencing, it is recommended that the correct tools are purchased for the job in hand - at the very least, you will require a Torx T6 screwdriver.

Step 1. Release the battery cover.

Step 2. Remove the battery cover and the battery.

at the top of the phone.

Step 6. Now slide your shim along the sides of the A cover to release all the remaining clips.
Step 7. Now lift up the A cover.
Step 8. Use your shim to release the keypad.
Step 10. Carefully lift the PWB unit - bear in mind that this is glued in place.
Step 11. Remove the PWB unit and screen.
Step 12. Release the flex at one side,
Step 13. and then at the opposite side.
Step 14. Now lift away the PWB assembly.
Step 15. Release the LCD connector.

Step 20. Half close the phone and release the main flex assembly connector.
Step 21. Carefully slot the flex connector through the C cover.

Just want to remove front panel to clean

Anna, Normally front is not fastened with screws. In case, first check for any screws that could be holding cover in place and remove them. To remove front cover normally you push down on the top plastic frame which helps release clips, while pulling or pry cover off towards you, in the same area.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Can i take my frigidaire ac out of the case without removing it from the window?

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that you want to know whether you can take your Frigidaire air conditioning, model# FRA256ST2, out of the case, without removing the case from the window. Yes you are. Below are step by step instructions for removing your air conditioning from the case.

    1)Unplug your air conditioner.
    2)Take the front grill off.
    3)Remove the filter.
    4)There are four panel screws, two on each side of where the front grill and filter were. Remove these screws.
    5)Gently pull out your air conditioner.

    For replacing your air conditioner, follow the steps in reverse. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your washer light status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

    -Best regards-

I would let the managment know about the mold problem, this can be serious. If you want to clean this yourself, use rubber gloves, a brush, and buy a spray bottle of mold remover. The filter should be located behind the front grill. It should snap loose, and they are normally made of a foam material that you can wash in your sink and let dry. Sometimes they remove them a throw them out!! If this is the case, let them no about that also.Please keep me posted.

How do i remove my st699 honeywell programmer from the wall.just cant do it.

Because there are no apparent screws to remove the front of this unit it can be very confusing if you have not done it before. Underneath and to the right hand side you will find a small notch in the plastic, it can be difficult to see when the unit is on the wall, using a small terminal screwdriver push upwards on the plastic tab which locks the front in place and with a slightly larger flat bladed screwdriver prise the front off bottom first then the two locking tabs at the top.
You will probably find that the back case is fastened to the wall with two screws.
Replacement is simply a matter of snapping the front back into the case.

Front indicators

Removing the indicators is a simple process involving the removal of the fairing to unclip and unplug them from the fairing. The plastic press studs that hold sections of the fairing in place are prone to breaking when you remove them but are easily obtained from your local Yamaha dealer and inexpensive.
