this particular guide originally only had the prerequisite guide portion, so the steps to replace the top buttons were repeated across every single guide we had. I adjusted the prerequisite guide to include the separation of the two halves and moved the top button replacement guide to its own page. As this is still a private guide, it won’t be published unless we approve it.

This article has been flagged as the prerequisite guide for a few of our articles, so I ended up altering it to be such. However, the ones that are not linked to this one, I added a few steps.
