The keyboard you totally destroyed which was not required. You undo the screw on the bottom under the door, and then use the pins at the top of the keyboard which then the keyboard will come up slightly where you can get under it and pry gently along the top, and then sides… After that the keyboard pulls right out and you undo the ribbon cable…

You murdered that keyboard… If you are going to create instructions for others to follow, please make sure you know what your doing to begin with… So no one follows your poor example
