Step Lines

+[* icon_note] It is possible to remove the motherboard whilst keeping the daughterboard in its place. However the flex connector of the daughterboard sits on the backside of the motherboard and its a bit of a fumbling to disconnect it while you're holding the motherboard in your hand.
+ [* icon_caution] In case you're planning to remove the motherboard without the daughterboard take especially care not to damage any surrounding components whilst disconnecting the flex cable.
[* black] Use the pointed end of a spudger to pry up the motherboard until you can get a good grip.
[* icon_note] The motherboard sits loosely on the mid frame so there are different positions to place the spudger and to pry it up. Avoid to damage any surrounding components.
[* black] Carefully lift up the upper part of the motherboard.
