    The nylon covers are essentially stickers, so you don't have to pry to deep.

Nylon covers are hard to see, they cover the entire area and peel off like a sticker, I didn't think mine had any and I pulled the screw socket out, not disastrous but I would have liked to have not done this.

Any idea where I can buy some replacement ones?

I was able to complete it successfully though right now I can't get the bezel quite flush down on the bottom left. One clip doesn't seem to want to go in so I'm not sure if the display cable is in the way or not. Will have to give it another look here after work but otherwise easy enough!

Where could I find a replacement part for the 2 nylon screw covers?

I replaced my sons screen and now the screen is completely black. I ordered the same exact screen that it had. Spent the extra money to get the special tools and made sure I didn't touch anything with my bear hands. Can someone email me with a possible solution? I've power cycled it, and let it charge overnight. I'm at a loss and I can't afford to take it to a computer repair shop. It's only 7 months old.

@kristinas2boys I've never worked on this particular model, but whenever a repair doesn't work out as expected your first step should be to check your work. Open it back up, re-seat the display connector to make sure you're getting a good signal, and check for any signs of damage, etc. If the problem persists, it could be a defective display, which you can test by reinstalling the old display—if it works correctly, your replacement may be defective. If none of that applies, post your issue in our Answers forum and you'll have a better chance of getting some help. Good luck!
