Use the tip of a spudger to pry the display data cable lock and rotate it toward the DC-In side of the computer.
Pull the display data cable straight out of its socket on the logic board.
Do not lift up on the display data cable, as its socket is very fragile. Pull the cable parallel to the face of the logic board.
Remove four out of the six 5.3 mm T8 Torx screws securing the display to the upper case.
We purposely have you leave one screw attaching the display to the upper case to aid in future steps.
When reassembling, make sure that the screws go through the two grounding loops on the webcam/airport cable.
