    • Do not pull the keyboard away from the laptop. The keyboard is connected to the motherboard by a cable. Pulling the keyboard may cause damage to the keyboard and/or motherboard.

    • Metal spudgers and similar prying tools can damage internal components like the motherboard. It is ideal to use a regular black nylon spudger or a plastic opening tool, but for this device the metal jimmy was the only tool to work.

    • Flip over and open your device. Gently wedge the metal Jimmy into the rightmost hole at a 45-degree angle. Make sure that the Jimmy is between the silver metal portion of the keyboard and the silver plastic edge around the keyboard.

    • Tilt the metal jimmy away from you to pry up the edge of the keyboard.

    • Repeat the previous actions on each of the other three holes to release the keyboard.

Good guide, but missing a step. In the one I disassembled, the optical drive needed to be removed (it just slides out), and two screws that were holding in the keyboard needed to be removed before the keyboard would come out.

Agree with iGuys, need to remove optical drive and two screws, they are smaller than others.
