Removing the old screen protector

Before you install a new screen protector, the first thing you need to do is remove the old screen protector. Well, the job is pretty easy, and we’ll tell you how to remove it in the upcoming section.

Cleaning the Tesla screen

After removing the old screen, you will notice dust on the edges and corners. Also, the Tesla screen can have dust here and there that can create bubbles after putting on a new protector.

1) Use a wet wiper on the screen

Take a wet wiper and dry wipe to remove any dust and debris from the screen. First, you need to use a wet wipe throughout the screen in a circular motion. It will take away even if there’s any stain.

2) Use a dry wiper or cloth all around

Now, dry out the screen using a dry wiper or dry cloth. Clean the edges and corners carefully as these are the most common place for dust.

3) Remove any dust using the dust grabber

As you are finished with the cleaning, take a dust grabber and remove any dusty spots seen on the screen. The good thing is, a quality screen protector comes with all these three cleaning materials.

Putting on the installation template or frame

To make sure the protector fits well to the screen, you need to put on a frame on the screen. The frame is well known as the installation template. Clip the four edges to ensure a perfect fit of the template.

Putting on the new screen protector

Here comes the most difficult part of the entire process, which is installing the new screen protector. Take out the new protector from the package and put it on the screen by fitting it with the frame.

1) Peel off the back part of the protector

There’s a sticker mark on the top left corner of the protector that helps put it on the screen. Carefully peel off the back part using the sticker mark.

Be careful not to touch the back or sticky part of the protector while peeling off the back cover. Use the dust grabber once again a bit to ensure the screen is completely dust-free for the installation.

2) Put the bottom & let it down

Now, put the bottom part on the frame and let it sit on the screen.

3) Remove the installation template

You can now remove the installation template and wait until the protector sits properly on the screen.

Removing any bubbles

The job is done but you are seeing a few bubbles on the screen. There are two things you can do to remove these bubbles. The first one is to take off the part of the screen with the bubble a bit and use the dust grabber there.

Removing the dust means there will be no bubbles afterward. The second thing you can do is to use a squeegee and press on the bubbles created part softly. As a result, the bubbles will go out, and you have your job done.

Turning on the screen

Tap on the screen and hold it for 3 to 5 seconds to let it wake. That’s all you need to do after you the installation is complete.
