Introduzione

After the LCD is removed, it looks like the webcam and microphone are right within reach. The two wires that are connecting them to the main logic board are behind a lot of the other wires and components making it a little tricky to get to their connectors and take them out. Also, since the microphone is held in by adhesives, a prying tool is absolutely essential to replace it!

    • Place the two suction cups on both sides of the top of the screen and make sure to lock them in place.

    • The glass screen is connected to the rest of the display by small magnets. Lift slowly and the screen will come right off.
