you can actually Simplify this a Lot by removing the fan on the bottom shown in Step 1 upper Right side then once you get to step 8 you only have to remove the screws for the processor heatsink and then bam your processor is able to be removed or replaced

The Dell Inspiron 8600 I have (not sure the year) I had to remove the keyboard to access the CPU.. Remove two screws holding the keyboard down and lift on the white tab. Remove the fan (two screws and the fan comes right out).. That give you more room to remove the heat exchanger. Other than that it was SUPER EASY !!! Thanks
