Getting the new cable back in was an exercise in frustration. It doesn’t seem like it goes very far in, and it’s hard to know if it’s in at all. Part of that is how long it is. My experience was that it actually was in, but looked like it was not. To test how far in it has gone, get your tweezers right near the point where it is in, and then pull it back out, and you’ll be able to tell what was in. It’s not a whole lot, but doesn’t have to be, turns out.
This was the point I started wishing that I still had the battery connected so that I could test that the cable was in, though.
Even aside from the other warnings, there are two main reasons not to disconnect the battery:
1. If you’re super careful, putting back in the battery cable isn’t going to damage anything. But it’s still an enormous pain in the rear end, and was easily the most time consuming step in the whole process for me. The fact that it’s not needed makes it extra pointless.
2. At some point you’re going to want to test that your buttons all work, but you can’t do this without power. If you’re like me, then after getting all the cables reconnected you want to be sure they are properly in place and thus actually work. You can’t do that if the battery is disconnected.
There are actually four screws in the center, which is confusing. However, you only have to take out the two shown. The other two are not holding the battery casing in place; they go through and hold the motherboard in place. If you take out the extra two screws it’s not a crisis, but things will flop around more.
The included screwdriver worked fine for me.
Agreed, this is impossible to do on the model I have without taking the cable off. The ribbon runs right over it.
