  • Disconnect the keyboard connector from the logic board.

The keyboard connector can be very tightly connected. Use caution and a pair of needle nose pliers to pull it up from the board. The left side of the connector (left as shown in the photo) is easier to grasp than the right, so grab it on that side with the pliers and pull carefully. It will come off.
