We recommend using a heat gun for precise separation. At the same time, cautious heating is required to avoid damaging the device's surface.

Power Off the Device

Before starting the disassembly process, ensure that your Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) is powered off to avoid any potential damage or electrical hazards.

Remove the SIM Card Tray

Using a SIM card removal tool or a small paperclip, eject the SIM card tray from the side of the device and set it asid

Heat the Front Panel

To soften the adhesive securing the front panel to the device, use a heat gun or hairdryer to apply heat evenly along the edges of the screen. Be cautious not to overheat the device.

Insert Opening Tool

Once the adhesive is softened, insert a plastic prying tool or guitar pick into the gap between the front panel and the frame of the device. Gently work your way around the edges, releasing the clips holding the front panel in place.

Lift Off the Front Panel

Carefully lift off the front panel assembly, taking care not to damage the delicate ribbon cables that connect it to the motherboard. If necessary, use a suction cup to lift the panel slightly before inserting a plastic tool.

Disconnect Ribbon Cables

With the front panel removed, locate the ribbon cables connecting it to the motherboard. Use tweezers to gently disconnect these cables from their respective connectors on the motherboard.

Remove the Screws

Next, locate and remove the screws securing the midframe to the main body of the device. These screws are typically located around the edges of the device. Use a Phillips screwdriver (size PH00) for this step.

Separate the Midframe

After removing the screws, use a plastic prying tool or guitar pick to gently separate the midframe from the main body of the device. Start from one corner and work your way around the edges, releasing the clips holding it in place.

Access Internal Components

With the midframe removed, you'll have access to the internal components of the device, including the battery, motherboard, camera modules, and more. You can now proceed with any necessary repairs or maintenance tasks.


Once you've completed your repairs or maintenance, reassemble the device by following these steps in reverse order. Ensure all connectors are properly seated, screws are tightened securely, and the front panel is properly aligned and attached to the device.

Open the SIM and Micro SD card tray with the key tool and remove it. Pushing too hard may result in injury.
