Where are the zif latches.

Would you be able to show in a close up how to unlatch the zif connectors in an Apple Watch series three screen replacement.  All instruction mention opening the latches as a necessary step.  But, I can’t see any latches and when I attempted to open the latches on my old screen, I broke them all.

Hi Tom! Be sure you’re using our repair guides, not our teardown! I assume you’re talking about these connectors on the display.

If those photos aren’t enough to help you out, maybe our connector guide can help a bit with disconnection?
