Hi iFixIt thanks for all the details BUT the keyboard can indeed stay in

when changing the hard drive. Just slide it a bit to the right after step

11, the ribbon cble does not take any damage. SO: from step 12 jump

straight to step 20. The heat sink can stay untouched, which i find not

unimportant to mention. Regards, TB75
