Using your thumbs, slide the lower case away from you.
The lower case may stick in the front on a tab just above the center of the DVD drive. Be careful as you work the case off, or you may break the thin strip of plastic just above the drive.
Lift the lower case off.
Skip this step if your computer does not have an Airport card.
Firmly grasp the plastic tab attached to the Airport card and pull up and to the left.
Disconnect the antenna cable from the left side of the Airport card.
Remove the hard drive by gently grasping the orange ribbon cable and lifting the left edge up and out of the computer.
There are four rubber bumpers that fit over the hard drive screws. Ensure that these bumpers come out when you remove the hard drive.
Grasp the orange ribbon cable and disconnect it from the hard drive. If the connector is tight, gently rock it from side to side.
Be sure to pull evenly on both sides as uneven force may damage the hard drive pins and render your data inaccessible.
If you are installing a new hard drive, we have an OS X install guide to get you up and running.
