Step Lines

[* black] Use your fingernail to flip up the retaining flap on the DVD drive ribbon cable socket.
[* icon_caution] Be sure you are prying up on the retaining flap, '''not''' the socket itself.
[* black] Pull the DVD drive ribbon cable out of its socket.
[* black] Remove the DVD drive from the Wii.
[* black] Once the DVD drive has been removed, remove the 4 rubber washers from the screws removed earlier and insert them into your new DVD drive. Because two of the screws are difficult to reach, it is best to insert the screw into the washer and then slide these two into place ready for securing to the base plate
