Peer review:

Step 1: This step is unclear and seems unnecessary. It should be removed or reworded to be more specific: "Position the laptop with the back cover facing upward."

Step 3: This step is also unclear and seems unnecessary. It should be removed or reworded: "Re-position the laptop with the back cover facing downward."

Step 5: This step is grammatically confusing and should be reworded. Example: "Lift up the tab covering the electrical ribbons. Pull the ribbons gently to remove them."

Steps 5 and 6 are missing photos so the instruction is not clear.
