For precautionary purposes, we advise that you disconnect the battery connector from the logic board to avoid any electrical discharge. This step is optional and is not required.
Use the flat end of a spudger to lift the battery connector up out of its socket on the logic board.
Disconnect the camera cable by pulling the male end straight away from its socket.
There is a small piece of hard plastic stuck to the logic board that stops the camera cable from falling out of its socket. Be sure to peel this off first or you could damage the connectors.
Make sure to pull the connector parallel to the face of the logic board and toward the optical drive, not straight up from its socket.
Remove the following screws securing the camera data cable and right speaker to the upper case:
Two 8 mm Phillips screws.
One 4mm Phillips screw.
One of the 8 mm Phillips screws will likely remain captive in the camera cable ground loop.
Slide the camera cable bracket out from under the subwoofer and remove it from the computer.
