As noted in an earlier step, you must make sure that before you start this entire task, Step 1 should be to “Shut Down” your computer completely. I used a stubby pair of long nose pliers to bend the clips out. Don’t use a screw driver.
This is also a difficult step as it isn’t clear that the connector is held in place by a clip that is initially flat against the board. It must be rotated up at a 90 deg angle to the board. then you can work the connector back out parallel to the board.
Several of the people above mentioned not disconnecting these three wires. You must remove and replace these if you are replacing the entire display which is what these instructions are about. This is the most difficult step as others have noted. Just be careful and make sure you have the cable level before you start pushing down.
Much easier than expected. Sounds like several people had trouble with the backlight. It is possible that they damaged something by not first making sure to power down the computer completely with the “Shut Down” command. This should be step 1 before removing the back cover screws. Also as noted all the back cover screws are Apple Pentelope #5 bit, but 2 of the screws are shorter than the others. This bit is is hard to find in most stores. Buy it on line along with the Tork #5 and #8. 11/21/2017
