Motorola RAZR V3 - How to remove and replace the antenna - Step-by-Step (Pictures)

Another in the series of tutorials on how to tear down and repair your Motorola V3 RAZR mobile phone. The guide will cover how to remove and replace the antenna on your Motorola V3 phone should it be broken or defective. This guide assumes that you have successfully removed the back plate from your Motorola V3 mobile phone.

Here is the step-by-step guide to Removing and Replacing the Antenna:

1. Remove the battery cover, battery, SIM, and rear housing assembly as described in the previous guides.

2. Use the metal tweezers to grasp the rubber antenna grommets and carefully remove them from the antenna assembly. See picture below. Set the rubber grommets aside for reuse.

3. Use the disassembly tool (non-marring pry tool) to release the antenna assembly as shown in the picture below.

4. Carefully lift the antenna assembly away from the phone.

5. To replace, align the antenna assembly to the phone.

6. Carefully press the antenna assembly into position until the antenna assembly latches snap into position.

7. Reinstall the rubber antenna assembly grommets into their slots. Each antenna grommet is uniquely shaped to fit into its respective position.

8. Replace the rear housing assembly, SIM, battery and battery cover as described in the previous guides.
