The case needs to be separated. Use your fingers or a pry tool to gently start at the front and work around the entire case. There are several cables connecting both sides of the case internally, so be gentle. The cables will be removed in the next step.

Remove the internal cables by starting with those in the front and working towards the back. Use your fingers to gently remove the cables from their sockets. The cables connecting the display to the main chassis are difficult to pull out using your fingers. A tool of some sort (tweezers in this case) may need to be used.

Once the case is separated, it is relatively easy to replace the display. Just be very careful; new displays can cost several hundred dollars.

Once the screws are removed, you can separate the display by itself. The easiest way to accomplish this is by leaving the display flat on the table and tilting the panel up (as if opening a laptop). This will shift the hinges to allow easy removal.

Remove six screws from underneath the  bezel: two next to each hinge and one at each top corner. Beware of the magnets. These are used instead of latches so the computer stays closed during travel. If they attach to the display on removal, gently put them back in their original positions. (These are highlighted in orange)

The connector to the display on the back should be removed. Be gentle because these are not replaceable. There is tape holding the cable to the display. The best method of removing the cable is by gently pulling tape off of the part connected to the display and using that leverage to gently pull down. There is tape holding the cable to the display.

There is still a small connector that should be removed. It is located near the right hinge. Be aware of the direction the cables are removed. They need to be replaced exactly the same later.
