    I found it was easy to get a spudger over the left edge and lift it up a bit, then push the bar to the left, It pops right off after that.

Hi iFixIt thanks for all the details BUT the keyboard can indeed stay in

when changing the hard drive. Just slide it a bit to the right after step

11, the ribbon cble does not take any damage. SO: from step 12 jump

straight to step 20. The heat sink can stay untouched, which i find not

unimportant to mention. Regards, TB75
