This step-through is not complete.....

how do you actually change the screen????

lrj7 - Réponse

Yes, you're right. Also there's a gap between steps 7 to 8 because you cannot actually detach the upper screen without disconnect the board cable from the lower screen part.

By the way, I can't quite successfuly open the upper screen part on my dsi xl because it dont seem to give any space between the two covers. Any suggestions?

NOTE To others out there… this guide is only to change the plastic cover over the screen, and not the screen itself. See James Bourne’s link for the real “how to replace upper LCD” guide.
