There is a black flex ribbon lock that must be lifted and unlocked with your tweezers before this flex ribbon will detach. Any small tear could ruin the flex ribbon. Be very gentle while removing it.

The red (7 mm) and orange (5 mm) circles at the top right quadrant of the silver panel should be swapped.

The red circle at the bottom left quadrant of the silver panel is around a plastic post, not a screw. It should be around the screw that has an orange circle around it in the same quadrant.

The second 5 mm screw that should be circled in orange is just to the right and slightly lower than the screw that is circled in red in the bottom right quadrant.
