Sounds like its between the protective cover and the grid. So, nope... its not user friendly. I would replace it because if its behind the protective cover/glass, its already covering the mesh grid that activates each pixel and it probably has damaged it already. If it isn't behind the protective screen, then you may still have a chance but it sounds like, from your description, its the worse of the two. Just remember how a TFT LCD works, and you'll realize that taking one apart isn't really an option.
If you argue with an idiot he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
