    • Use your fingers to gently pull the ribbon cable straight out of its connector on the motherboard.

    • Since this cable's pull tab is too small to grab with fingers or tweezers, grab the cable itself. Otherwise utilize pull tabs whenever possible.

    • During reassembly, grab the ribbon cable by the blue tab and gently press the cable straight into the connector. Push the blue tab rather than the ribbon cable itself.

Conclusion

To reassemble your device, follow the above steps in reverse order.
