Purchased fixit LCD need to remove frame

Purchased a iFixit LCD for the iMac EMC 2389. It does not come with the two frames on each side with the magnets. How do I remove the old one and install on the new screen?

I looked at the LCD cleanup, but that doesn't fit the model.

Part I ordered:

Well, you did get the correct part!

Once you get the frame off your old panel and installed to the new panel you should be OK.


That's the whole problem of getting the old frame off. I got the two on each side off, but where are the others?

The raw LCD screen is held to the frame with four screws that on the left & right sides. You’ll need to move some of the foam away on the top two screws.

Hint: Look at the panels edge to find the screws holes two per side.

I found the four screws on each side. But others must be holding it on. Where would they be?


It should just come off. Carefully slice between the frame and screen with a thin blade. It's been awhile since I've needed to replace the older screens is there a third screw in the middle?

Looking at the new screen do you see more holes along the edge?


No third screw and no more holes. I was not slicing through the right area to release the tape. The mounting brackets have been removed. WOO HOO!
