The photos do not show a camera strap, and the instructions don't mention it. Before starting disassembly, I advise removing the camera strap. It make it easier to remove and re-attach the back cover.

A handy guide. I had an A590IS with a broken battery door latch on the camera body, and I managed to obtain a dead A590IS with a fully intact latch for free. So using this guide I swapped the body shells over! All fixed and working again!
