    • Apply one or two drops of highly-concentrated isopropyl alcohol (over 90%) to any residual adhesive.

    • Only apply one or two drops at a time, and don't spill any on the screen panel itself to avoid damaging it.

    • Each adhesive strip has a flexible liner on the back, and a stiff liner with hole cutouts on the front. As you orient your adhesives, make sure the stiff liners with holes face upward.

    • Before applying your new adhesives, lay them out over your screen to find their proper orientation:

    • The long piece with curved ends is for the top edge.

    • The other long piece is for the bottom edge.

    • The short piece with a notch cutout is for the edge with the screen cable. The notch should be closest to the top edge.

    • The other short piece is for the edge opposite the screen cable.

    • Hold the screen slightly below the bottom edge of the frame and align the screen cable with its socket on the motherboard.

    • Use angled tweezers to grip the pull tab on the neck of the screen cable.

    • Angle the cable so it's lined up and parallel to the socket, rotating the tips of the tweezers as necessary to get the right angle.

    • The end of the cable needs to be parallel to the motherboard—not angled downward.

    • Gently insert the connector into the socket until the white line meets the body of the socket.

    • If the connector doesn't smoothly enter the socket, realign it and try again.
