For the LCD screen, initially, follow the battery replacement guide, then disconnect the LCD connector from the motherboard. Separate the screen by unscrewing the hinges and pulling the screen from the device. From there you must open up the screen by removing a vent, bezel, and rubber o-ring. Finally, you disconnect three cables and unscrew the screen to complete the guide.
