While holding up the upper case, use a spudger to pry up the orange trackpad and keyboard cable from its connector.

Do not try to lift the cable as shown on the image, but instead carefully lift it a bit on each side using a spudger (or similar tool) to make the plug pop out of the socket.

If you happen to break your upper case cable when removing the upper case, we stock the cable individually and we have a guide that makes replacing it easy.
