    • These screens are held in place by glue that is hard to remove. Please take your time to ensure that that this step is done correctly.

    • DO NOT USE A METAL TOOL FOR THIS.

    • Go all around the casing, prying the screen away from the backing with the spudger.

    • It will make a popping sound each time one of the lock tabs is disconnected.

    • Take your time as you move all around the device when prying the backing off.
