    • Flip the laptop right side up. Open the laptop.

    • Gently press in the four retaining tabs along the top of the keyboard with a spudger, one at a time.

      • After the first tab is released, gently lift up on the keyboard so it doesn't lock again. Finish the other three tabs while gently lifting up on the keyboard. The keyboard will hinge up along the bottom.

    • Gently flip the data cable latch away from the data cable with flat side of spudger.

    • Lift the cable up and out.

    • When reinstalling cable, there are two retainer wings on the sides of the cable that the cable that lock onto the bottom of the cable latch area. When these are in place the cable is properly inserted.

    • For removing the optical drive you don't need to disconnect the keyboard ribbon cable.

    What do I do is i broke the cable retainer wings and the black thing?

    If the connector on the motherboard is still attached and only the clip is broken you can try and find a new clip, or perhaps tape the keyboard in place with electrical tape.

    • Stand laptop on its side.

    • Use the flat end of the spudger to unseat the optical drive.

      • It works best with a twisting motion of the spudger.

I am curious why the guide notes that you need to remove the keyboard ribbon? Removing and installing that cable weakens it and could damage it. I was able to remove the drive without taking out the ribbon cable; I just flipped the keyboard out of the way.
