Time to remove the frame from the display assembly. Any guesses as to how it is secured?

If you guessed boatloads of adhesive, you were correct!

With the help of a spudger, we carefully pry the frame from the display assembly, nervously holding our breath at every creeeeek emitted from the loosening frame.

The frame is made out of magnesium, as opposed to the aluminum plate found in the non-lit Simple Touch. We verified this magnesium claim the hard way, apparently not having learned our lesson from last time.

After removing the frame, we are finally ready to take out the display assembly. We start by, surprisingly, removing more adhesive holding the display cable in place.
