    • Lay the Kindle face down on a soft cloth to protect its screen.

    • Wedge the plastic opening tool in the small opening between the grey plastic and the metal casing.

    • Move the plastic opening tool across the opening while pressing down to separate the grey plastic from the metal casing.

    • Slide the gray plastic top piece away from the Kindle's metal casing.

    • Once the gray plastic top piece is detached from the metal back cover, remove it.

    I had a heck of time using the spudger. I have found that grabbing the corners and using my thumbs to push the plastic away worked like a champ.

    • The volume control button rests in a slot on the side of the Kindle. When the metal casing is removed, the volume control button may fall out. When reassembling, place the volume control button back into its slot.

    STEP 7.5 Remove Plastic Protector. There are 16 2.5mm screws keeping it in place. Remove them and the protector will come off easily. I used this guide a few months ago and it had a step here explaining this that now seems to be missing.

    You don't have to remove this connector to look at the keyboard. Remove it only if you are looking to replace screen.

    Also the black connector can be popped open like the other brown ones, before you pull out the connector cable.

    This particular connector must be seated all the way, for the screen to work and it's not easy to get it back in all the way. Be sure to note how far in it is, before removing it.
