Hello Laurie,

First you need to discharge yourself - touch a metal surface of the MDD with your hand and right after you've done that you can continue safely.

*Edit : Remove the Heatsink*

the yellow box indicates the connector underneath.

1 - in these two ellipses go your thumbs. apply a bit pressure.

2 - index and middle finger go under the board and pull up the board gently. you work against the pressure of your thumbs and the force of the connector. but I find this quite comfortable.
