  • 1) With your fingernails, grasp the locking bar on either side and pull up a small amount (about 1/16" or 2 mm).

  • 2) After disengaging the locking bar, slide the cable out of the connector.

In part 1, you can use a small flat-blade screwdriver to lift the locking bar. This will not put pressure on the cable itself. Each end of the locking bar will click when it has been lifted sufficiently.

  • You may be thinking you're about to break your upper case. Not to worry - the tabs holding the upper and lower cases together are very strong. Simply apply even pressure and continue to rotate the upper case up and away from the screen until it comes free.

When replacing the upper case, test the trackpad button to make sure it clicks before proceeding. If it does not operate properly, remove the upper case and reattach it.

after several assembly and disassemblies I found an SSD solution that works - essentially a PATA/EID to SD card adaptor from ebay (china source) for a few bucks and then I used carbon copy cloner to image and clone the active 6GB disk. My failed attempts involved 32GB SSD from Kingspan - would not boot (with any Jumper setting - very frustrating with a 30min each assemble/disassemble to test!)
