Pull the copper ribbon cable from the tab. It should be easily removed, as the ZIF connector is the only thing holding it in place. Next up is removing the volume button assembly. Another easy removal, simply pull the assembly away from the device and you're done with the removal process. Next up is removing the volume button assembly.
