    Good day my friends - as you can see I am a total newb to the forum!! and I need a tiny bit of your help please!
    I have watched videos, looked at diagrams, spent a few hours looking and looking and I cannot find the answer..

    My question is:

    I have disassembled my iPhone 5S due to water damage and cleaned it with isopropyl alcohol as suggested. Now, upon re-assembly I am left with 3 small parts that looks like washers that I have absolutely NO CLUE where they go and it is driving me nuts! Please see the attached photo and let me know where these should be reinstalled - please and thank you!

    Welcome to iMore!

    I think the one on the left is for the camera lens and ambient sensor. The other two pieces may also be for that but I can't remember.

    Hello and thank you for your replies - I really appreciate it.
    I found out where the two "spring/wave washers (on the left and top)" go. They are located on the bottom where the mic and speaker strip is on the raised screw mounts. So the only thing left is the mysterious "washer" pictured on the right. I tried matching is up by the indents pictured (2 on one side and single on the opposite) but was unsuccessful finding anything with that pattern. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you!!

    Please don't do that, especially when you were the one who disassembled your device. Anyway, have you tried going to the iFixit website to see if you can find out where the piece fits, as earlier suggested?
