So there’s this “Learn more about the Pixel repair manual” article on Google’s help page that’s been around since July, which had a repair guide for the Pixel 6a. Now we see it repair manuals for Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are also available.
Without further ado, here are the three repair guides that you can download in PDF:
As their name might suggest, These guides are here to help you get familiar with how your Pixel phone is built. They provide a detailed walkthrough of how to take a phone apart, repair it with original parts, and then put it back together.
This is also the best time to remind you repairs of this type are reserved for the brave and connoisseurs, so make sure you know what you’re doing before you attempt anything. The guides themselves really bring out the Google aesthetic, with great diagrams and helpful lists that can point you to the most common problems your Pixel might have.
It is a big step forward in the fight for the right to repair your own smartphones. Although even if it becomes a reality, many of us won’t be nimble enough to pull off these finger-sized stunts, it’s good to know that documentation is available if we want to make sure that a third-party shop repair isn’t cheating U.S.
