Is it possible to change the touch screen yourself? Of course, it is, but you should be very careful. Methods of change for different models are similar and are shown well on Youtube.

Optimal temperature of desoldering drier is 180 degrees. It's not enough for deformation of plastic case, but it's ok for melting of glue, by which touch screen is connected to the case.
