    • The connector may be tight. Gently rock the connector from side to side while pulling directly upward to free it. You can use this technique on many of the cards and cables you'll be disconnecting.

    • Make sure you have removed the laptop battery and CD/DVD modules from the expansion bays before proceeding.

    • Skip this step if your computer does not have an Airport card installed.

    • Firmly grasp the plastic tab attached to the Airport card and pull up and then to the right.

    • The Airport card is still attached to the antenna cable, so don't just yank it out of the slot.

    On mine, the airport card had been put it with the orange ribbon OVER the top, so had to unplug the righthand connector and then plug it back in after (see pic for Step 8)

    • Grasp the plastic tab on the processor's right side and pull it directly up.

    • Some processors may be missing the plastic pull tab. In this case, we suggest using a non-metal tool to gently pry up the processor. Slip the tool's thin edge under the front right corner of the processor and carefully pry it up.
