How do I replace the Digitizer/Glass on Samsung Ultrabook?

Samsung Series 7 Ultrabook NP740U3E - 2013

I can't find any resources/tutorials for this model, the LCD panel itself is in tact.

I just need to replace the front glass, any advice? I don't have that much experience with these replacements (mainly older equipment). I see no visible screw points, am I suppose to just pry off the panel? Is it held in by adhesive then? Would I need to reapply adhesive if that's the case?

Is this a good question?

If anyone finds this on Google or searching, here is how I did it.

Disassemble laptop.

0. Remove button screws for the cover, then remove the video/data ribbon, the wifi connections, then unscrew the hinges to disconnect the panel assembly.

1. Pry a corner, above the rubber

2. After getting a gap, grab a credit card or similar

3. While moving your pry tool around the edges use the credit card to remove the adhesive (be careful of the white top plastic strip that's clipped into the panel)

4. Focus on the bottom part last, when there move the panel away from the LCD.

5. Use your credit card again to peel away the adhesive.

6. If you already have a replacement panel with a ribbon cable, just snip the ribbon connecting the panel. If not the next step may be a bit annoying.

7. Put force from inside the hinge plastic cover holes, do this for both sides. This should snap the cover off.

8. Disconnect the ribbon cable from the board

9. Reconnect with new digitizer

10. Reassemble

Sorry I suck with tutorials, hopefully it helps someone.

I succesfully disassembled the digitizer & screen using the description by Miles Collier, thank you! I used a hot air gun at 140°C (=284°F) to help the adheasive get loose.

Now I've see that part of the frame which holds the hinges on the screen side has come loose. It seems to have been glued together originally.

Has anybody an idea which glue to use to put it togehter again?

Thanks in advance!
