There are retainer clips all around the the display. Female clips are on the display and male clips are part of the bezel. Just make sure the female clips are not out of the display and stuck to the bezel. If so, take the clips out of the bezel and reinstall them in the display then try to reinstall the bezel. I don't remember if you must begin the installation from the display inferior side or from the upper side. Maybe someone could specify the procedure. Anyone ?

thank u a lot for your answer. Was good in theory and I've put the female from inside, so i had to take the screen off which was easy, but still did not fit. It's seems that the frame is too big, on the sides seems too long some how. Still have to take it to a repair shop. Thank you, and the idea was v good, maybe is something else. I will let u know after i got it done!

Hi! I live in North London, HA9 and that would be great! Those clips, the grey ones, are not strong enough; I was expecting better quality for the price you have to pay to own a mac! Thank you!
