    • Use a 1.5 mm hex screwdriver to remove the two hex screws on either side of the display (four screws total).

    • If you don't have a 1.5 mm hex driver, you can probably get these screws out with a T6 Torx screwdriver. However, if you use a T6 Torx driver you'll be more likely to strip the screws.

Im not sure where they get the difficulty ratings from- I found this to be about a 20 minute job- one word of warning - before you order your screen you need to find out if the connector your model uses is a 20pin (about 1 inch long) or 30pin (about 1 1/2 inches long) This means you need to pop off the case and pull up that little metal foil BEFORE you order. Other than that, the hardest part is probably getting that back light cable back in the hole (and it only goes one way) I used a set of my wife's tweezers, and I use a small flat head eyeglass screwdriver to get the case off.
