STEP 7.5 Remove Plastic Protector. There are 16 2.5mm screws keeping it in place. Remove them and the protector will come off easily. I used this guide a few months ago and it had a step here explaining this that now seems to be missing.

You don't have to remove this connector to look at the keyboard. Remove it only if you are looking to replace screen.

Also the black connector can be popped open like the other brown ones, before you pull out the connector cable.
