    • The piece is now free from its fastenings to the base of the laptop, and can be lifted off.

    • This piece is still connected to the laptop via power cable. Be sure not to lift it off too far or with too much force, as doing so could potentially rip or damage the cables.

    • Flip the keyboard over towards the edge of the laptop to expose the locations of the connectors. Avoid tugging on the cables when you do this.

    • Locate and remove the first connector cable.

    • Use a prying tool to assist in unplugging the cable.

    • Locate and remove the second connector cable.

    • Again, use a prying tool to help remove.

    • The left section of the keyboard is connected by a single screw and two connector cables.

    • Remove the screw with a J000 screwdriver.

    • Remove the connecting cables with a prying bar.

    • All sections of the keyboard are now free to be taken off and replaced!


To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.
