Hi there and welcome

No you wont be able to. The LCD is thin and glued to the screen and its very strong. You would need to heat it to detach which destroys the screen.

you would have to replace the entire digitizer as well.

Samsung will charge $200 to replace this for you and it is the best option.

ok, but you will also need the digitzer as well as your not going to get it seperated with it still working. The glue is too strong.

I am going to opt out of working with you, you do not need to do anything, a new expert will contact you if they take over your case.

Thank you and all the best

Hello. My name is***** can provide you with additional assistance.

You can replace the class separately from the screen and digitizer but be aware that it is extremely difficult. You have to heat up the glass sufficiently to be able to pry it from the digitizer and screen, both of which are wafer thin. Once you've done this, you can replace the glass – some people take shortcuts, but the correct way to replace it is to acquire some ultraviolet cured glue and apply that to the screen and cure the adhesive with ultraviolet light. As I said, it is extremely difficult, and it is also messy, but it can be done. Here is just one place that you can get the class from:

You can also find the ultraviolet adhesive easily on eBay or Amazon. Here is a link to the specific Glue that I use for screens.
