I Echo Jompos strategy about not having to remove the LB. I would add that in order to loosen the “Fixation” of the LB, I removed all the screws attaching the board to the lower case. I also disconnected L & R speaker cables from LB. Used spudgers wedged on either side of LB to carefully raise LB enough to carefully slide battery flat cable out from under LB. Insertion of new battery flat cable under edge of LB was done with care and good lighting. Battery extracted with a silicon, rubber cake icing spreader. No liquids or floss used here.
Un reassembly, DONT OVERLOOK the placement of the “Board Flex Cable” from step 19. Make sure you don’t leave it imprisoned under this assembly. It needs to be lying over all this assembly.
I Concurr with Bonachera. I almost damaged the pins in the connector trying to twist it into position. The cable retainer holds it in tight and prevents the delicate maneuvering while reinserting the LCD cable. The pins are easily bent and broken. There is a delicate, grey, plastic thin frame holding all the pins neatly in place. After you have carefully reinserted and locked down the cable. then attach the cable retainer.
A head lamp has become an indispensable tool in my laptop repair business.
