Place the monitor face-down on a mat, soft clean microfiber cloth, or even a dry towel, with the stand (bottom) facing toward you.

Remove the stand by firmly pulling on the small, cylindrical portion while applying pressure on the swiveling mount.

Work your way around the edge of the monitor using a plastic spudger, guitar pick, or smooth metal spudger. There's a large metal casing around the display, giving you some room for error as you work the plastic clips around it.

detach the small cables by pulling on the connectors and wiggling them off with spudgers, then remove the ZIF ribbon by flipping the "back" of the connector's black flipper upward.

Remove the display and single PCB from the front mount by pulling up, then forward, clearing the small metal clip at the bottom of the display.
