Very useful, thank you. A real pain to do though without snapping the plastic tabs on the upper case.

OMG... guys, you need just unscrew FOUR screws on the bottom (two orange circles on the same level that yellow sticker and two orange-circled screws in the middle of left and right side) and then pop the keyboard up with knife, etc, and disconnect the cable.
