Pic 1 - PCBs removed. Screen assembly and frame only.

The screen is only held on with some adhesive so (CAREFULLY) pry them apart. Using a heat gun to loosen the adhesive is HIGHLY recommended to avoid cracking the LCD while separating. The adhesive runs around the entire LCD frame. It's the adhesive that holds the LCD to the digitizer, not the metal frame. Try not to pry against the screen.

Pic 2 - Screen assembly only.

Carefully peel silver tape off of black tape.

Starting at the right (in the picture) peel up the black tape. Be careful! The power ribbon cable for the backlight is hidden under at the left side. See next step for location of connection.
