Is replacing the screen reasonably feasible at home?

My display got badly scratched and I need to replace it. I have read the 17" display teardown and the screen is the last thing to come out. Can it be accessed without having to remove all the other parts?

Is this a good question?

mickmich, does not look like it. You will have to take it all apart just like the guide shows. I am not a Mac person, just a person who enjoys hardware from any manufacturer. Hope this helps, good luck.

Thanks for your answer. Since the display can't be used as it is, I'll give it a try anyway. The guide will be most helpful.

Hey ! It worked. I successfully replaced the screen on my 17"ADC display!

I followed the tear down guide (a million thanks for it) but I didn't remove any of the electronics. I just disconnected them from the screen. The hardest thing was reconnecting the ADC cable to the new screen because one of the connectors is not very accessible. I wished there was a way to make sure everything was well connected before closing up. Everything was. I am a happy man. Thanks again
