Insert the plastic opening tool into the gap on the side of the tablet, near a corner where you want to start removing the screen.

Place the small suction cup on the screen near the corner that the plastic opening tool is placed.

Lift the small suction cup up while pushing down with the plastic opening tool to remove screen (you may need to have someone else hold the device down for proper leverage).

A ribbon cable is attached to the back of the screen. Avoid lifting or moving the screen more than 3-4 inches before disconnecting the ribbon cable or you could damage the device.
