    • Use the flat end of the spudger to gently pry off the ribbon wire from the inside of the camera.

    The ribbon cable is connected to the camera via a plug (the gold colored PCB has a male plug on the other side of the PCB). This plug is at the end of the spudger. You need to pull that PCB boar/plug straight up from the camera (perpendicular to the camera)
