Open the hinge and carefully pop off the Upper LCD using your fingers.

Gently remove the ribbon from the hinge.

Though not required, the task of removing the ribbon cables becomes much easier once you remove the hinge barrel on the right side of the device.

Do not lose the tiny fabric and rubber water-resistant rectangles that cover the two speakers; they often fall out once the speakers are removed.

The screen's cover glass can be replaced or transferred to your new screen. The cover is easily scratched by metal tools; use plastic or your fingernail to separate it.

Adhere the cover to the new screen by using thin adhesive around the edges, or by reusing the old adhesive.

To reinsert the hinge piece, open the console to the last click before it's completely flat.
