The top of the keyboard has locking tabs that need to be pulled back towards the keyboard center or it won't come out. They hold the replacement keyboard in place long enough to get the screws into it.

But you don’t need to remove the battery.

Jakub Daszkiewicz - Antwoord

Taking it out was easy, putting a new one in- just impossible, brackets very brittle and cracking. Had to give it to the shop to fix it.
