Warning: Be CAREFUL because the LCD screen is still attached to the front side of the motherboard by a flexible ribbon cable and to the front case by an adhesive.
Using a spudger, remove the display screen from its cell within the front case by inserting the spudger next to the LCD on the opposite side of the side where the motherboard is attatched.
CAUTION: The LCD is attached with a sticky adhesive so it might be difficult to get off.
