[title] Screen disassembly
[* black] Remove 6 screw covers (if present) from the screen bezel, and remove the 6 screws.
[* black] Use a spudger to release the retaining clips around the edges of the bezel and the bottom of the hinge cover, and lift off the bezel.
[* black] You now have access to the LCD, the inverter at the bottom of the screen (this powers the backlight) and the WiFi antennae along tne top.
[* icon_note] A few more screws allow you to remove the LCD panel from the screen shell, which you will need to do if you have a bare replacement LCD. Without the protection of the screen shell the LCD panel is delicate and should be handled with care.
