I’m having some real trouble getting the inner screen liner back on. I can’t seem to get it to hook under the plastic around the hinge mechanism. If you have completed this repair and could offer any advice on this aspect of it I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

I found the answer on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fWYr8CfZ...). Turns out there is a much easier method to replace the screen the doesn’t require unscrewing the bottom of the Chromebook at all. You just remove the hinge cover and screen liner, swap out the screen then replace the screen liner and hinge cover.

I used this guide to fix the cable running to the screen. Turns out Asus had installed the cable over the hinge and not under as with the antennae.
