The USB cord is connected to the logic board by a plastic plug with five wires. Gently pull up and wiggle the white plastic end attached to the wires out of the mother board. The white casing on top pulls off from its counterpart on the logic board. Do not take off the bottom part of the white fixture from the logic board.
