I have been operating an on-site computer repair business...
Yep, I cracked the lower corner of the display as well. I failed to work the adhesive enough to loosen it sufficiently. Be careful, I just had to buy my customer another screen!
Thanks a million for the guide Walter. I read through the guide a few times, looking at what other folks had issues with and when I was comfortable, I started. I liked the suggestion of using a full can of soda. I had a spare V1 Amazon Echo in my office and since those suckers are REALLY heavy, things never moved around a lot. I ordered the tool & parts kit from iFixIt and what can I say; no drama at all with getting that battery changed. In fact, it was much easier than I had expected. The only things that really gave me a bit of a challenge was the size of those iddy biddy little screws and my inability to see them without magnification and also the re-connection of the iddy biddy little cable connectors. A light touch, a good light, a little patience and you’re set! Again, thanks a million for the guide. Pete in Seattle.
