Save money by replacing just the LCD rather than the entire display assembly.

    • The following procedure allows the changing of the rear display bezel without removing the display assembly from the computer. Do not attempt to rotate the display back farther than the hinges allow or your computer may be damaged.

    • Open the computer with the display facing you and rotate the display back as far as possible.

    • Remove the T6 Torx screw from the bottom left corner of the display assembly. The computer casing will not allow the screwdriver to be inserted directly into the screw, so be careful not to strip the screw.

    • Remove the T6 Torx screw from the bottom right corner of the display assembly.

    • To avoid cross-threading these screws during reinstallation, use a pair of tweezers to start each screw in its hole before using your Torx screwdriver to tighten them.

    • The next few steps require the use of plastic opening tools and spudgers that will probably be destroyed in the process. Have a few spares of each tool handy.

    • Insert a plastic opening tool between the left edge of the front display bezel and the plastic strip attached to the rear bezel, with the edge of the tool angled toward the LCD.

    • Rotate the tool away from the LCD to pop the rear bezel off the tabs on the front display bezel.

    • Work along the left edge of the display until the rear bezel is evenly separated from the front bezel.

    • Freeing these tabs may require some force. Be sure to support the display assembly with your other hand to avoid putting too much strain on the hinges.

    Forget the spudgers! I found an expired MetroCard to be a much better tool for this task. The MetroCard is hard plastic and just 10 mils/0.25 mm thick. This makes it easier to slide into the gap between the front and rear bezels. I cut up the Metrocard as I went so I would not lose progress made. Once the case had been breached I used a 4" plastic putty knife (50 mil/1.25 mm) to open it up. Disassembly was pretty easy with these tools.

    • Lift the LCD off the front bezel enough to insert the flat end of a spudger between the metal LCD frame and the front display bezel.

    • Trying to insert your spudger between the LCD glass and the inner metal LCD frame will surely damage your LCD.

    • Run your spudger along the lower edge of the front display bezel to separate the adhesive from the LCD frame.

    • Pull the LCD toward the top edge of the front display bezel, minding any cables that may get caught.

    • If you are replacing the LCD, make sure the replacement has the lid-closure sleep-switch magnet in the correct position, or transfer the magnet from the old display. The magnet is the 4mm disc near the top center of the LCD, held in place by clear yellow tape in this image.
