In this step, you will de-solder the four wires pictured. Mark the wires with a sharpie or a paint marker to keep track of their locations, as each pair of leads is nearly identical.

De-solder the four wires boxed in red using the same procedure on the preceding step.

Do not apply too much heat to the joints as you de-solder, as the ribbon cable they are soldered to is extremely delicate and melts easily.
