Thanks for the feedback.

Sth else that troubles me is that in the GTA04 mentions 
a double side tape that holds the PCB and the LCD.

In the GTA04 case the GTA04 PCS has new ones (as i understand), but in the
case of the LCD replacement that i'm trying to do those tapes were weared off
during the removal of the broken old LCD module.

What should i do?  Can i buy one  double-tape from a local store and use it ?

So the tape holds the LCD steady and the silver pads smoothe the shocks? 
i dont understand why in the manual they'r called (conducting) ..

glued on the board and no soldered points on the pads.
