    • Start by taking out the battery and charger. No power should be connected.

    • Unscrew the 4 Phillips #1 screws marked in the photo.

    • This screw is hidden under the Warranty void sticker!

    • All screws are the same length, so don't worry about mixing them up

    • Use a spudger or your finger to gently but firmly open the cover.

    • It's stuck in there with clips, so be a little careful. (Remember; If you feel like you're using too much force, you probably are).

    • The WiFi card has two antenna cables (one white and one black).

    • Use a spudger to carefully unhook the antenna contacts.

    • Unscrew the Phillips #0 screw holding the WiFi card down. (This is not the same screw as the others).

    • Take the old card out of the mini PCI Express slot, and replace with a new and compatible card.

    • In my case I only had a direct replacement, which only supports 802.11b/g standards.

Conclusion

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.
