Lay your iBook upside down on a flat surface.
Use a coin to rotate the battery locking screw 90 degrees clockwise.
Lift the battery out of the computer.
Pull the keyboard release tabs toward you and lift up on the keyboard until it pops free.
If the keyboard does not come free, use a small flathead screwdriver to turn the keyboard locking screw 180 degrees in either direction and try again.
Flip the keyboard over, away from the screen, and rest it face-down on the trackpad area.
Pull the keyboard cable up from the logic board, holding the cable as close to the connector as possible.
Make sure that you reconnect the keyboard cable before replacing the RAM shield.
