  • Remove the nine Phillips #00 screws that secure the metal shield plate.

    • If there are any water indicators on top of the screws remove them to ensure a proper seating for your driver.

  • Do not remove the shield plate yet, it is attached by a connector and an adhered cable.

  • Use a spudger to disconnect the fingerprint sensor from the motherboard.

  • Peel the NFC antenna cable off of the metal plate.
