Excellent helpful easy to follow instructions. Thanks.

In step 7, removal of the Touch Pad, I was not able to locate the release clip. Feeling around, what I thought was the latch was a ribbon cable that I distorted but didn't destroy. The top came off without the Touch Pad removal. Once the top was off, I located a latch on the back right of the Touch Pad, but once released, it didn't help to free up the Touch Pad. I couldn't get the Touch Pad off.
