It is very unlikely you will get this screen off without breaking it. Luckily, my customer only wanted the SSD out of the device so he didn't care if I damaged it. This screen is crazy fragile and the glue is very very strong. Do not do this job thinking you will likely not break the screen, unless you have done it before.

The only way to remove it without breaking it is to use good scotch tape and completely cover the screen with a minimum 4 layers of tape. This will keep the screen intact - but you still have to be very careful.
