It was easier than expected, except for putting the plastic hinge cover back on properly, the plastic feels weak, but it’s stronger than it feels!
First time I took apart the screen from the body it took me 20mins being careful, now I can do it in less than 6mins! I’ve it a few times now!
Some parts were unnecessary to takeoff
One of the Torx screws holding the Display in place failed to come out. I tried too hard and it shredded the head of the screw so there was no physical leverage to the screw driver, so I left it to avoid any further damage.
So instead I removed ‘not’the torx screw on the computer but the one on the display itself. There are three on the inner part of the screen, two facing the display and the third on the other side. It sled out easily.
It only added a couple of minutes to my time removing it.
But a word of caution, you must remove the long plastic housing that holds the cables for the iSight and display, just be gentle and slide it off trying not to snag the cables, it should come off easy.
How about keyboard replacement
I did a screen replacement for the A1286, was much easier than I thought, because I “had to” bypass much of the tear down as it was not necessary.
