    • Wedge the metal spudger in between the back cover and the frame along the seam.

    • Be careful with the battery ribbon cable, as it is very easy to break (ours did when disassembling).

    • Note how the end of the ribbon cable seats in the plastic chassis. Look for the plastic pin on the chassis when re-seating.

    • Separate the battery from the motherboard.

      • The battery and the motherboard are secured with adhesive; some force is needed.

      • Lithium-ion batteries are potentially dangerous. Handle with extreme care and do not puncture the battery.
