    • Use your thumbs to push the two battery retaining tabs away from the battery.

    • The ZIF cable is located underneath the bottom RAM slot. If your PowerBook has both RAM slots occupied, make sure to remove the RAM chip.

    • Use your fingernails to separate the ZIF cable lock away from its socket. (Move the two brown bits down 1mm)

    • The ZIF cable lock will move about a millimeter away from the socket before it stops (see picture 2). Do not try to remove the ZIF cable lock.

    The ZIF cable locks are the little grey pieces seen on the cable-side ends of the white bar. They will slide, as per detailed picture, toward the cable.

    • Remove the four 3.4 mm Phillips screws from the DVI connector side of the PowerBook.

    • When replacing these screws, you must reinstall each screw in the correct order. Begin by installing the screw closest to the display hinge, and go out from there.

    • Starting near the display, lift the upper case straight up off the lower case, minding any cables that may get caught.

    Sometimes the "tags"/"lugs" that are around the edge of the top & bottom frame, be careful not to bend them as when putting back the covers they will not merge. I used a screwdriver to poke through the hole the screw was supposed go in & push against the "inside nut" to let the tag from the top slide down between the 2 tags. The "inside nut" is like the one right next to the ribbon cable as shown in Dia.14. The screws are from Dia. 7&8.

    in what direction does one move the ZIF cable lock? what/where is its socket?

    When putting the machine back together (following steps in reverse), make sure the trackpad ribbon cable comes through the underside of the computer — there is an opening that the cable needs to go through and you will want to “thread the needle” with the cable before securing the upper case again.

    At the end of these instructions, Jimbo Combo also mentions this, but it should be repeated.

    Because the trackpad/keyboard cable is part of the top face/keyboard/trackpad assembly, it’s actually a PITA when doing reassembly.

    One way to make this step simple is to do the following:

    1. straighten the Zif cable removing all of the bends that is probably has in it.

    2. Start putting the top face/keyboard/trackpad assembly on, starting with the edge AWAY from the display.

    3. Place the laptop on it’s side, and thread the cable through the opening, using tweezers if necessary so that it fully goes through the opening in the case.

    4. Place the laptop back to the way it was and proceed.
