    • Remove the 6 Tripoint screws holding the case together.

    • Pry the 2 halves apart. Do not force it though, or you may break your GBA.

    • Turn the GBA so that it is like the Third photo.

    • Fold the motherboard down like in the first photo. Be sure that the case is ON TOP of the motherboard.

    • Use a screwdriver or tweezers to unplug the ZIF Connector from the motherboard.

    • Take the Screen ribbon cable out of the motherboard.

    • Use a flat-blade screwdriver or the pointed side of a spudger to remove the 5 rubber screw covers.

    • Unscrew the 5 tri point screws under the rubber pads.

    • Close the GBA and unscrew the single Phillips screw on the bottom.

    • We are done with the screws now!

    • Open up the GBA and everything should fall apart. Thread the ribbon cable through the opening and lift the screen out of the upper case.

    • You are done!!

One issue - you never mentioned how to get the hinge off, so getting the ribbon in and out is.. hard.

I am pretty sure, as the actual screen can be separated from the plastic cover (the thing that says game boy advance). I’ve never seen fungus in a screen though. That’s interesting.
