Jennifer Harris, take a look at this video. Those are called "pop connectors" 2:58 shows how to remove them. Hope this helps, good luck. Don't forget to make a guide and post it on ifixit ;-)

I have the same problem... was anyone ever able to provide an actual answer? The marked answer does not answer the question; it only tells how to disconnect the flex cable from the battery-and-keyboard portion of the phone, not how to disconnect the flex cable from the camera and LCD screen. The connections between the flex cable and the LCD and camera are not "pop" connections.

This may be an old question, still answering it to help others.

I had same issue with my droid 4. Bought a new flex cable alone (without LCD display) and later was stuck looking at the glued kind of connection. Done some googling and found some vidoes explaining some iPod flex cable replacement in which they talked something about 3M™ Z-Axis Electrically Conductive Tape 9703. I bought it from ebay.com and had to fix it very carefully making sure the alignment of connectors are proper. The fixing was perfect, but I think my LCD module was already damaged! I could get a blank lit screen nothing else.
