    • Remove the battery indicator cable (#3) from the white connector by lifting up the connector latch (#1) pulling on the tab (#2).

    • Even if you do not plan on replacing the base cover entirely, decoupling this fragile cable will ensure that it doesn't get damaged if the base cover is moved for whatever reason.
