How to replace a Fairphone 2 module

The Fairphone 2 was designed to allow you to replace the parts that are more prone to failures and accidents. Some repairs, like replacing the display or battery don’t even require any tool. For others, like the rear camera, receiver and speaker units, you’ll only need a Phillips screwdriver (#0). The relevant screws are color-coded so you know which ones to remove.


Where can I find a Philips screwdriver?

Check your toolbox, they usually include one. Please note, Philips is not a brand name, but a screw shape. Possibly you already fixed one of the arms of your glasses with one of those. Otherwise you may find it at your local tool store or on the web.
