This replacement was extremely simple. I have some experience from years ago when I replaced laptop parts during an internship, but was worried things might have gotten a lot more complicated in the 15+ years since. But it was super easy. This guide + the toolkit made it an absolute breeze. I was actually surprised how easy this was. I'm convinced almost anyone can do this. Thanks for the tutorial!
