Hi, my name is ***** ***** will be assisting you with your question today..
These situations are not easy to do blindly like this but im going to try to guide you.....
With the back cover off do you see the connector with red, white, yellow and black wires coming off the battery?
That is how you disconnect the battery,, it will disconnect on the BOARD side, not battery side
Yes the back is where we need to be
Did you disconnect the battery as I explain above?
I do not know your technical background but be very gentle with that connector and avoid pulling the wires
I usually use my finger nails to gently pull it out
Once that has been carefully unplugged, we can begin the drive extraction
On the drive enclosure facing the battery you will see the long black connector, unplug that first
It should look like this
Disconnect the connector from that enclosure then unscrew the 4 screw on the tabs on the OUTSIDE of the drive bay
Once you have done that you will be able to LIFT OUT the enclosure from the laptop
You can then unscrew the 4 retaining screws holding the drive cage to the drive itself
Top man, thanks
Thats correct, same exact steps in reverse order
Your very welcome, please dont forget to hook the battery up :-)
Ive had some customer forget that and put it ALL back together hahaha it is quite a scene
