Turn off your Surface Book and detach the display.

Heat and apply an iOpener or use a hair dryer or heat gun to heat the perimeter of the display, in order to soften the glue securing it.

Use a suction cup or iSclack or pull up on the edge of the display, and create a slight gap between the display glass and the frame.

Insert an opening pick into the gap.

Use only gentle force with the pick, and keep the display very hot (slightly too hot to touch). If you use too much force and/or allow the glue to harden, the glass will crack.
