    • Remove the two screws that hold the upper case.

    • You can now pop up the upper case and replace.

    I found that the "upper case" does not come loose this easily. The DELL service manual calls this piece the "palm rest" and includes several other steps, which when followed does allow the piece to be removed. For instance, following removal of the display, the directions go on as follows, with detailed directions:

    3. Remove the display assembly.

    4. Remove the microprocessor thermal - cooling assembly.

    5. Remove the video card .

    6. Remove the 13 M2.5 x 12 - mm screws from the bottom of the computer.
