    • Turn the laptop back over and open the monitor.

    • With the monitor facing towards you, gently pull up on the keyboard panel from the bottom.

    • With the keyboard turned over as pictured, carefully remove its ribbon cable from the connection port on the logic board. Use a spudger to lift the white plastic retainer about 1/16" to release the cable.

    Use a spudger under one of the keys on the bottom row to very gently lift until you can use your hand to lift the keyboard.
