Introdução

In this guide you will remove a total of three pieces to replace the keyboard. It will be a combination of prying and pulling to complete the task. During this process, it would be a good idea to have some electrical cleaner handy to clean the connections and the plastic pieces of all unwanted residue. This is an easy replacement and can be done within an hour. The only tools needed will be a spudger.
