    You do not need to remove the whole cover, in order to replace the keyboard.

    The description for this job is right.

    The switch plate cover just pops off.

    Screws revealed, secure the keyboard.

    Unclip the ribbon cable.

    Job done

There are 2 screws at the back corners on the bottom cover that are holding the screen down. They need to be removed in order for the screen to be lifted.
