Lay the iMac display-side down on a flat surface.
Loosen the three Phillips screws securing the rear panel to the iMac.
These screws are captive in the iMac. The center screw will stop turning after about 3.5 turns and the outer screws will stop turning after about 5.5 turns. Do not try to remove these screws from your iMac.
Lift the rear panel slightly near the bottom of the iMac.
Pull the rear panel toward yourself and remove it from the iMac.
Lift the AirPort card slightly by its plastic tab and pull it straight away from its socket.
During reinstallation, insert the AirPort card such that the antenna side is nearest the center of the logic board.
