Step 2: Remove display
Carefully lift the screen out of the frame using the suction cup and the thin metal spatula.

Step 4: Release Metal Cover
Open the screen like you would a book so you are able to reach these these screws securing the metal cover. Note exactly which screw goes where!
Step 5: Remove Connector
Remove the battery connector from the logic board using the plastic spatula.
Step 6: Release Battery
Very carefully pull the black ends of the adhesives stuck to both ends of the battery. Pull them steadily, one by one, with a maximum angle of about 60° and maintain tension until they slips out from under the battery. The strips will lengthen considerably, simply grab them near the battery and continue pulling.
