[title] Disconnecting the 'RL' button
[* black] The plastic plate is held onto the mother board by a fragile ribbon cable. This cable does not have much slack to work with carefully open up the plastic plate like the picture shows. This will allow access to the connector for the 'RL' button.
[* black] The ribbon cable is locked in place by a small grey plastic switch located on the same side that the cable is inserted. Take a spudger and flip this switch upwards and then gently remove the ribbon cable this allows you to remove the plastic plate completely.
[* black] Note:icon_reminder] When reattaching this ribbon cable during reassembly, it is easiest to have the switch on the side furthest from you. This makes it easier to manoeuvremaneuver the tweezers holding the cable and get the ribbon cable into the switch successfully.
