  • Remove the back plate carefully. I suggest to use a credit card or something similar as it is shown on the photo. This method avoids that you accidently crack the back plate. Take your time to do this, don't hurry.

  • Attach the back cover again and tighten the screws. I'd suggest to tighten them diagonally which means start with the one on the top left and on the bottom right, then the one on the top right and bottom left and so on.

Hello, one question, is it not necessary to stick the black sticker with the foam stripes from the HDD to the SSD?

Tim - Reply

The procedure for Asus F200CA is similar, but there are screws hidden behind the two back feet.

For Tim and others: The foam stripes are probably only to cushion the HDD a bit. As an SSD is not sensitive to shocks the foam can be omitted.
