Hello, i think you forgot to disconnect internal battery first before you replace something

That is true, that'd been a much safer way to do it.

Tip for the case screws, they are captive don’t worry about them

Yes, good point - case screws are captive and easy to keep in place when lifting the cover. But overall this is a well written guide, so thanks for this.

If you have an SD card in the SD card reader make sure to remove it before trying to remove the case cover, otherwise it will not come off, and you risk damaging your motherboard if you force it.
