This is the exact Apple Reportedly Set to Launch new Mac Mini with iPad Mini | Think Tek journal for aynnoe who wants to move out out virtually this substance. You mention so such its nigh tiring to argue with you (not that I rattling would want…HaHa). You definitely put a new rotation on a content thats been typed nearly for life. Metropolis nonsense, simply high!

No you will have to remove the rear panel shown in video and than all connecting cables to the logicboard (motherboard) they are: bluetooth, wifi, & camera on far left and center left respectively and the LDVS cable on the right. This is if held in the perspective that the battery and hard drive are toward you. MAKE SURE MACHINE IS POWERED OFF and battery cable is disconnected before disconnecting any cables. There are 2 wire guides that keep these cables in place remove those and you will see the hinges holding the upper display assembly to the lower Assembly I believe torx T8. Remove these and the upper and lower will be detached you can next separate the parts and slide off the old clutch and replace with the new. If this video disassembles the whole mac Watch it. if you dont have another device to watch the video at the same time as you do the work I find a picture taken before you remove parts and cables is a big help as you reassemble. Take the time to watch the video first. Writing it out makes it seem much more complex then it is.

@Saqib - they will be fairly similar. You should be able to follow it.

Sorry I should explain what I want to do - I dropped the laptop on once corner and it dented. So I need to replace the top case for the display (high res/matt so it has a bezel instead of glass) and also I need to replace the palm rest case.

@Amy - we typically have the suggested tools on the product page of the part you are replacing.

It would be really helpful if you listed all of the necessary tools at the beginning of each video. It sucks when you're halfway through taking apart your laptop and you find out that you don't have the right kind of screwdriver.

Viewed the take-apart video -- well done! But clicking on the reassembly video gets "Video not found or access denied: /Manuals/210/mbp2012-2.mp4"...
