1. The screen assembly I am using in this tutorial arrived encased in foam, bubble wrap and styrophome. Quite a pleasure to unpack.

  2. With the size of some of  the screws I found it a bit of a challenge to determine the screw head size. I hope the pictures help. This pic shows that I use P2,P3,T3,T4 and T8 bits.

  3. Start with removing the 4 corner screw and the two center screws from around the bottom pannel. **NOTE the screws next to the hinge are a different length (longer) that the two at the other two corners, and the two center screws are the shortest. so keep that in mind when putting your MacBook back together.

  4. There are a few clips holding the bottom in place so after removing the screws I used a suction cup and pulled the back off. This took a but more force that seems good but I found it safer then using a splugger around the edges.

  6. Now comes the hinge screws. actually for the next few steps it probably does not matter what order you remove the screws. But I did the hinges next. These require a T8 diver. I forgot to get a picture of the hinge caps that will need to be removed first these required a P3 driver. and the screws are very tiny. Once these screws were removed you can pry off the hinge caps and access the hinges.
