Turn the logic board assembly over to access the heat sink's x-clamp.

To avoid ESD damage, be sure to lay your logic board on a soft, static free surface during service.

Starting at the front left corner of the x-clamp, insert a 1.5 mm flathead screwdriver between the heat sink's peg and the x-clamp's hook.

Gently rotate the screwdriver counterclockwise, releasing the x-clamp's hook from the peg.

The logic board is very sensitive to impact and scratching. Be sure to not let the screwdriver slip and damage the logic board.
