Remove bug under glass display of 2013 iMac
I recently got a thunderbug that died under the glass display of my 2013 iMac (the version that has the glass closely laminated to the LCD, so you cannot just remove the glass front like in the 2011 iMac).
In the past, I already opened that iMac once to install an SSD, so I would have no problem removing the whole display itself and installing a brand-new one. However, before I do that, I was wondering whether there are options other than buying and installing a new display unit.
- If I remove the display unit from the iMac, would I be able to somehow lift the glass from the LCD, and remove the bug through this?
- Would it be possible to somehow blow the bug away with a vacuum cleaner after removing the display unit? I don't remember whether I saw any ventilation holes on the display unit when I first openend the iMac, however, given that a bug found its way inside, there should be a way to suck air out of it, wouldn't it?
- Could nature do its work and decompose the bug after several years? I would probably just wait for this if the bug would really decompose after some time, but I doubt that a dead body "conserved" between the display would be able to fully decompose. For instance, a corn of dust stuck under those kind of iMacs (I had that once in a 2012 version) doesn't really move as well, so where would all the organic parts of the bug go?
Given that all of this really "bugs" my mind, I'd be thankful for any insights on this issue!
Is this a good question?
