Ended up breaking the display while replacing my hinges. I must have pulled too hard when separating the display from the bezel adhesive.
My question is why is there adhesive on the plastic bezel? I think the magnets are enough to hold the bezel in, and taking the adhesive off would prevent accidental breaks like this. For a piece that is supposed to be easy to remove, I don’t think adhesive is necessary.
There is a very light adhesive tape on the bottom edge of the bezel I found out the other day. It doesn’t require much force to separate from the display. Definitely wouldn’t think enough to cause the type of pressure needed to cause what’s pictured.
Hi @Ergodot. The very light adhesive on the bezel does not have the pulling force to cause any damage to the display. @amoun is correct as it’s just to keep the entire bezel flush around the entire display.
@Second_Coming I was pulling on the bezel with the display screwed in. According to @TheTwistgibber even though I was pulling on the bezel, the adhesive shouldn’t cause any damage to the display. I don’t really know what tape they used or what it is rated at, so kinda have to take their word on that
