To replace a broken Honor 10 Lite combo, the first step will be opening the handset. Honor 10 Lite back glass is plastic made and It is pasted on the backside. So the first step will be taking out the Sim Outer (Sim Tray) and then blowing hot air on the back panel.

Here you need to make sure that you keep some distance between the back panel and the equipment you are using for hot air (A perfect alternative would be a normal Hair Dryer). Keep some distance as Honor 10 Lite battery back door is plastic made and If you keep the temperature high, the back glass can get puffed up and lose its shape. So keep some distance and heat evenly.

Then you need to make some space by using a sharp object and a perfect example would be using a plastic card (Plastic Playing Cards also work like charm). Cut the plastic card from the middle and try prying the back door from the sides. Once you are able to make some space in one place, the rest should be very easy to follow. Be gentle, hold the phone firmly, and DON’T insert the plastic card inside way too much. Keep it limited to the edges only.

Open all the screws gently and keep in mind from where you are removing the screws and the size of screws can be different at different places.

After pasting the display, place all the things in the same place as you removed. You will need to paste the Honor 10 Lite back panel again. For that you an use the same glue you used to paste the display.
