I suspect you are meant to remove the two T8 Torx screws holding down the drive retaining bar on the other side of the hard drive. Once the bar is removed, the drive will pivot out without having to touch the screws on the battery housing wall side.

  • There are four rubber bumpers that fit over the hard drive screws. Ensure that these bumpers come out when you remove the hard drive.

The hard drive can be removed with its bumpers intact, by just taking off the black plastic clamp to its right. Reinserting the drive is also vastly easier when done this way.

Insert the new latch by rotating the clip up and pushing the latch into place. Then rotate the clip back down, pushing in at the area where the clip bends around the latch. Make sure to insert the clip fingers back into their slots.

Because there’s a magnet in the latch button assembly, small bits of anything ferrous that fell apart inside the laptop have a tendency to get stuck in the mechanism. I thought I needed to replace a latch because it appeared was broken; instead, when I disassembled it, a couple of hunks of metal bits came out. Then, when reassembled, it worked perfectly!
