Step Lines

[* red] Disconnect the LCD thermal sensor cable connector from its socket on the logic board.
[* icon_caution] This connector is very difficult to disconnect, and the wires may may strip out of the connector while trying. You may wish to not disconnect this and instead have a helper swivel the screen out of the way while you remove the hard drive. There is enough flex in the cable to allow this, if you disconnect the other 3 cables.
[* icon_note] If your fan is spinning full speed after completion, check this connection or the hard drive's thermal sensor cable.
