    • Press down on the outer gray shell around the keyboard

    • Use the spudger to gently lift keyboard

    • Do not pull up the keyboard too far as it is attached to a ribbon underneath

    There are 2 spring-held latches, one above the F4 and one above the F12. Push a latch up into the frame of the keyboard, then lift the keyboard gently in that area so the latch doesn't spring back. Then push the other latch and the keyboard will be released.

    The are 4 cables to remove: flat cable for the power and S buttons at top center; flat cable for the touchpad at bottom center; and 2 twisted pairs for the speakers.

    The speaker cable socket is very delicate. If all you are getting at is the CPU or the hard drive, it may be enough to disconnect the flat cables and gently rotate the uppercasing shifting it left to allow access to the right-hand side with the CPU fan and the hard drive.

    The top panel has cutouts that allow the cables to be disconnected before the top of the case is removed. The two flat cables are not clamped and can be pulled vertically out of their connectors. The delicate speaker cables are connected to the motherboard with plugs which can be gently levered up out of their sockets.
