Hold the display with one hand while removing the screws from the left hinge mount.

Remove the following 3 screws from the left hinge mount:

One 7.2 mm smaller diameter Phillips from the right side.

One 5.2 mm larger diameter Phillips from the middle.

One 10 mm Phillips from the left side.

Lift the left hinge mount with plastic piece out of the computer.

Check that the cables on the right are not trapped under other cables.

Before completely disassembling, take care to see how the left hing mount fits together. When you remove the display in later steps, the hinge will pop both the left and right hinge mounts out, along with two small plastic pieces. Knowing how the mount fits together will help with reassembly.
