  • Remove three 6.0 mm Phillips PM2.5x6.0 screws.

I would add that the third Phillips PM2.5x6.0 screw, not highlighted in the photo above, is located near the RAM module bay, close to the left corner of the RAM module, marked also with a small keyboard sign and a small triangle near. Not removing this third screw, could result in damaging the keyboard (in case one wants just to clean, not replacing the keybord).
