    If you pull it off, find a place that does micro-soldering. What a pain!

    Check your local Chinatown, you might find someone who worked in an electronics factory, like I did. Or scrap the thing and check on craigslist.org for a replacement.

    when going backwards, be sure to check the previous step before performing this one, to line up the black plastic bits to their places - just inside of the metal screws. if you attach the display without lining them up, you will have to remove it again to re-align them.
