    • Remove the gasket that runs along the perimeter of the display. You can use a spudger to pry up the bezel and tweezers to pull it out.

    • Be careful to not tear your gasket

    • Apply Heat to loosen the adhesive, in a pinch you do not necessarily need it; but it always helps with adhesives.

    • Begin Prying from the right corner as pictured.

    • The Webcam and Antennae are under the left side of the bezel.
