There is really no reason to disconnect the upper display LCD ribbon cable. It is somewhat difficult to re-attach properly. If not attached properly the DS will not boot. The lower LCD/digitizer assembly can be removed without the need for Step 16.

Excellent directions! Very much appreciated. DS back in full working order. A big thanks to the additional advice in the comments, especially about attaching a thread to the antenna tho I tied it on BEFORE pulling it thru and left it in place thru rest of repair. Pulling back thru was a doddle!

When reassembling I’d suggest to pass the antenna (black wire) between the charging port and the small EM10 chip.

I first put this wire under the EM10, I couldnt close the case of the DS. There was a resistance near this spot. I gues it was the antenna wire.

Although, to put the wire under the cartridge slot, under the EM10 is the best spot. If you look under the catrige slot, you can see there is no obstacle there.

I got this wire stuck under the cartrige slot when reassembling because it was bent upward when I passed it under the slot. So it was bumping against the top of the cartrige underneath sapce. So my advice is to bend it to get it straight before feeding it through the slot. Attach it to a thread before removing it, as advised in other comments, is a good idea too. Just secure the first knot by a second one or it might detach when you pull it.
