    • Remove the seven T8 Torx screws from the lower case.

    • Using your thumbs, slide the lower case toward the front of the computer.

    • The lower case may stick in the front on a tab just above the center of the optical drive. Be careful as you work the case off, or you may break the thin strip of plastic just above the drive.

    • Lift the lower case off.

    • To free the hard drive, remove the two T8 Torx screws from the right wall of the battery housing.

    I suspect you are meant to remove the two T8 Torx screws holding down the drive retaining bar on the other side of the hard drive. Once the bar is removed, the drive will pivot out without having to touch the screws on the battery housing wall side.

    • Remove the hard drive by lifting the left edge up and out of the computer.

    • There are four rubber bumpers that fit over the hard drive screws. Ensure that these bumpers come out when you remove the hard drive.

    The hard drive can be removed with its bumpers intact, by just taking off the black plastic clamp to its right. Reinserting the drive is also vastly easier when done this way.

    • Disconnect the pink and white inverter cable from the inverter board.

    • The display inverter has orange plastic shielding around it that looks similar to the tape used elsewhere within the computer. Do not remove the shielding from the inverter.

    The pink and white inverter cable connection to the inverter board is very tight. Grasp the notch on the right side of the white connector with needle nose pliers and gently wiggle and pull it out of the socket.

I didn't need to remove the modem on my Antimony model.

Absolutely no reason to remove the HDD, modem, or optical drive to do this on the 1GHz model. Remove the back cover and the two screws that hold the inverter in place, and thats all you need to do.
