This is the most scary moment as I did not know how to remove the orange flat cable. I would not come off and I broke off a little plastic. Somehow it came off accidentally as I moved the backcover. The cable was later re- inserted with care, from the right towards the left via a very thin slit.

"It is okay to remove the orange ribbon. This will be easily put back into place when re-assembling." Easily put back? Yeah, right (not!). It is actually anything but easy. I managed doing it after several attempts, but it was more by luck than skill. The ribbon is tiny, the contacts even more so and the slot into which the ribbon must be reinserted - I cannot even see it properly. A pair of small tweezers is a must for this step.

It would be better to lift the little white adhesive tape so that the backcover could be worked on.
