so i've read a lot about this and i think this post would help you

the above websites show detailed videos, although the videos for ssd are not out yet.. they will be soon and i would advise you wait for them as they are your best bet

but if you cant wait , here are some other options

this method is not specific to your model but it should work as they are both late 2013 models

but personally i would advise you wait for the videos to come out if you plan on doing it yourself

Hi mogaaxon,

Lately, iMacs have had very few differences between year revisions. Our Late 2013 EMC 2638 guides should work fine for your model: iMac Intel 21.5" EMC 2638 & EMC 2742 Late 2013 Repair

You shouldn't encounter any significant differences. If you do, let me know!
