There are 3 slots on the top of the keyboard where you will have to use a thin tool, such as a flathead screwdriver to push the tabs so the keyboard will pop out. Be careful when pushing in the keyboard tabs, as they may break if they if too much pressure is applied to them. You will have to flip a small tab up where the ribbon connector goes into the insert, so the connector can be released and the keyboard can be removed.

Remove the highlighted 4 screws and then use the plastic separator to remove the palm rest. Be careful when separating the palm rest from the laptop, because being too aggressive with it can cause the small clips that hold the palm rest in place to break .
