    • Plastic opening tools or a metal spudger may also be used.

    • Remove the five 11.5 mm screws located at the bottom of the scanner.

    • The top of the scanner will now easily pull off.

    • Pry the old scanning glass up with a metal spudger.

    • There are adhesives under the scanning glass. Be careful not to break the glass while removing it.

    • Lift the scanning piece and detach the ribbon cable by gently pulling on it.
