I'm in the same boat, but because of water damage. The right side of my screen doesn't respond to touch. Soon as I sell my car I can replace the screen.
I will likely be getting mine from a local retailer though. Will cost a few more bucks but I'm paying for the certainty of getting the right component the first time.
And the requirement of reassembling the phone isn't a problem for me
