I've been following a couple different guides, but the pictures/instructions all seem a bit different than my model (the last PB G4 17" high res with airport extreme, bluetooth, etc). I'm having problems locating the airport and bluetooth connectors, I can't find the "gold" connector to disconnect the airport antenna. Do I have to remove the entire logic board and PC card cage to disconnect the airport?

Here are a couple pictures of my computer disassembled:

I can lift up the PC card cage and see what I believe is the airport card in there. How do I disconnect it?

Here are some of the guides I'm looking at:

This guide says that you don't have to remove the logic board. Does this apply to me?

"First, follow the instructions at pbfixit.com to remove the display. If your powerbook is very new, you might have to go through some additional steps to disconnect the Airport connector, since it's changed. You have to get to the Airport Extreme card, which is under the PCMCIA cage. The pbfixit instructions tell you that you have to remove pretty much everything (hard disk, optical drive, logic board, etc) to do this, but actually you don't have to."

Thanks for any help!
