  • On each side of the battery there are 2 holes. Line up the holes with the gold plated screw port threads and black notches underneath them. See video.

  • Make sure the battery lies flat and secure within the bay before replacing the bottom cover/shell.

  • When maneuvering the battery back into place, keep an eye on the speaker wires that cross over the top right corner of the battery. These wires can get stuck behind the battery which therefore may not allow the battery to sit flat and secure in the bay. Makes sure the battery sits underneath the speaker wires.

Set the bottom cover/shell on top of the chromebook and line it up the best you can Start in the top right corner and squeeze the chromebook together. You will hear "snapping"sounds which means that you are properly connecting the bottom cover clips to the main chromebook frame. Continue to snap together the sides of the chromebook in a rotating fashion starting with the red arrows and moving along to the green, yellow, then orange arrows. Listen for the snapping sounds. See 3rd pic. You do not have to follow the  order of colored arrows, but it seems the easiest.
