I wished I removed the Orange Screw from the next step, BEFORE, I removed this connector, as I used a screwdriver without being careful enough and accidentally crushed the socket below this connector. At least I would have had half a chance. Managed to get the new connector on and amazingly the mute works but no more vol up or down :-(
Fantastic guide :-D
Thanks very much !!
Looking at pic on step 18, if you follow the black plastic release clip downwards there is another clip (just below the drive) so you need to pinch them together (with the optical drive in the middle), rather than just press down on the top clip.
If you look at the picture on step 19, you will see the corresponding release clip (just behind the middle of the orange ribbon cable) but it's not immediately obvious to see unless your looking for it.
