    • Lift the white ribbon clamps securing the keyboard ribbon cables to the motherboard. You can do this using a plastic opening tool.

    • Removing both ribbon cables from the motherboard will leave the clamps like so.

    • From here you can access the logic board, hard drive, and floppy drive.

    • Using a plastic spudger, gently pry up the uppermost board fixture. This is the Memory (RAM).

    Beware: there might be a little plastic 'bridge' piece that goes around the memory connector (mine had one that isn't in this guide) which needs to be removed first before removing the RAM card. It was both difficult to remove and fragile (broke on one side during removal).

    • Once the old Memory board is removed, replace it with the new Memory board.
