Hi fito6955,

I would take a closer look at step 6 of the guide you mentioned. You might - after possibly loosening/removing some screws (?) - be able to slightly and carefully (!) lift or even remove the motherboard and check the Sim tray this way.

Hi Fito,

I followed Erica's Camera replacement guide Asus Padfone 2 Camera Replacement and after step 5 you are there.

The sim tray seems to be soldered in with 8 connector plus additional 6 spots to keep it in place. Maybe the pictures can help.

Best,

Simon
