Using the heat gun, heat up the outside perimeter of the touchscreen to soften the adhesive.
Step 2 -
Use the plastic opening tool on the touch screen edge and a suction cup to separate it from the bezel of the iPad. Wedge in a triangle opening tool in the separation so that the adhesive doesn't come back in contact with itself as you continue working on the touchscreen.

Unscrew the three screws on the screen connector cover and disconnect them.
Step 4 -
Next, move to the screws on the main board cover and lift the cover from the bottom when they all are released.
Step 5 -
Heat the back of the battery to loosen it and remove the screws so you can lift up the battery little by little using a plastic tool.
Step 6 -
Remove the cover and disconnect the connector to raise the battery and mainboard together and finally remove the battery.
Step 7 -
Replace the battery and follow the steps in reverse order to put the iPad back together in working order.
