    Any idea what type of pcb header is on the board for the battery? I have a motherboard with a broken header but I cant source a replacement

    This is where I screwed up so I recommend extra caution for other newbies. Only the black part is supposed to come off. Don't be an idiot like me and pry off too much...

    • Release the left shoulder button flex cable socket by using a spudger to pry open the tab.

      • Be careful to not break off this small black tab!

    • Using tweezers, slide the flex cable out of the socket. Do not pull on the black tab! Instead, pull the thin flex cable away from the connector (to the left in this image).

    • Using a spudger, gently peel up the left shoulder button from the light adhesive connecting it to casing.

    This step is unneccesary.
