    I found pulling with two suckers started to bend the screen as the little clips holding the screen wouldn't release. So instead of risking damage I started to work my way around the edges of the screen by slowly pulling with the sucker and at same time  using the trusty old a spudger tool (Spudger) to gently pry open.

    #2:

    Be care sliding out the ribbon cable connector that goes to the screen. Its also tricky to slide back in after so you might need to peel the ribbon from the back plate to give some more wiggle room. I did.

    Cracked the screen following the instructions. Too bad I didn’t read the user’s comment. Fortunately it can still be used as normal, though on a white screen the cracks are evident. Good luck doing this .

    The comment is very important.

    #1. Spudger tools should be used together with suction cup.

    #2. Yes. I have small hands and was wondering how anybody with more normal sized hands would be able to do it. I made it but it was a bit tricky.
