I should add the to replace the screen, they must turn the phone off, disassemble it in order to replace the screen. This part they can do without password.

But to turn it on to test, they will need the password. You could be there with them.

They could swipe to unlock to test, but not attempt to enter in a code
Use the camera to test, pinch on it.
So I think they could test.

It summerise both prior comments, you could replace the screen, but the testing will be limited, you could rotate, the phone to test some sections,,,, ,,,,
You could get most of the work done without sealing it, have the owner test it. Once everything is confirmed to work, seal it.
Or do you subscribe to:
1) it costs x
2) if you want to stay and watch, the cost us x+y
3) if you make comments, the cost is 2*x.....

It's understandable why the owner might not ..  As long as they are comfortable with that making it impossible to verify.. Go ahead and do the complete work. Most other repair shops would not need/ask for.  Though the limited functionality might be good enough to confirm. I.e. The screen either works or it doesn't.  It is unlikely to have one section work while another does not.
