    • Place the opening tool's head under any edge of the keyboard.

    • Pull upwards to unsnap the keyboard.

    • Use your fingers and the opening tool to pop the keyboard out of its place.

    • You should't use any excessive force because the keyboard is still attached to the motherboard.

    I fount that it worked best to start at the “top” of the keyboard. The lower portion had tabs into the housing

    • You shouldn't use excessive force. The connector latch is very fragile.
