This is a white connector, and it is easy to get fingernails to both ends to pull it out of the metal socket.

There is a clear plastic tab to pull (being used in the photo), which lifts the battery in one, and unsticks it from the 2 or 3 sticky pads.

A No 0 cross point screwdriver worked perfectly well for these. There was a small black Acer sticker covering the one at the top right. All circled screws are the same length. In my case there was a small retaining plate between the two screws either side of the HDMI port (top left). The two screws in the rectangle at the left were significantly longer.

Disconnecting this was fiddly. It was even more fiddly to replace. The dark grey part of the connector on the board stays in place, and you need to slide the tail inside it. The orange tab was taped down at one edge.
