    Good Afternoon -

    This afternoon, I started replacing my iPad 3's glass screen and bezel again as the 1st replacement screen didn't work 100%. I am also replacing the black plastic bezel which goes around it as well as the home button assembly which never worked correctly.

    I got everything disassembled, swapped the parts, and put it back together (sans adhesive) and it all worked perfectly for once! There's just one issue I can't resolve... :(

    The glass / bezel / aluminum body is a snug fit! Evedentually over the past few months, the aluminum must have become not as square is it was from the factory. When I put my glass in, it doesn't fit correctly and is very difficult to do with replacing the bezel at the same time.

    I tried tacking down the bezel to the aluminum body with a few drops of super glue. This made it easier, but still didn't fit. If the glass were stronger, I'm sure I could pop it in, but it's obviously very fragile (and expensive!)

    Any suggestions? Thanks!

    May I ask why you did this? The iPad 3 hasn't even been out a year, so you would still be under warranty.

    As it stands now, you've voided your warranty and will now have to take it to a 3rd party repair place. Also, never use super glue. That's just asking for trouble.

    Can you bend the aluminum back into shape? Are you sure you didn't just buy a digitizer that isn't cut out to Apple's specifications and the glass is therefore the wrong size by a millimeter? That could be the problem, not the case.
