    • Slightly lift the lower case and push it toward the rear of the computer to free the mounting tabs.

    • For precautionary purposes, we advise that you disconnect the battery connector from the logic board to avoid any electrical discharge.

    • Use the flat end of a spudger to lift the battery connector up out of its socket on the logic board.

    • Use the flat end of a spudger to pry the subwoofer/right speaker cable connector up off its socket on the logic board.

    • Be very careful to pry under the connector as shown, and not under the socket itself. Otherwise you may accidentally separate the socket from the logic board.

    • Disconnect the camera cable by sliding it horizontally out of its socket.

    • Pull the cable parallel to the surface of the logic board, in the direction of the optical drive. Do not pull straight up, or you will destroy the connector.

    • If you see a small plastic retainer stuck to the logic board that prevents the camera cable from sliding out, peel it up carefully from the logic board. Apply a little heat from a hair dryer or heat gun if necessary to help soften the adhesive holding it in place. Do not attempt to forcibly disconnect the cable with the retainer in place.

    • If you still have trouble, use the point of a spudger to push at each side of the connector and "walk" it slowly from its socket.

    • De-route the camera data cable from the channel in the optical drive.

    • Remove the following screws securing the camera data cable and right speaker to the upper case:
