Step 3 Battery  ¶ 

  • For precautionary purposes, we advise that you disconnect the battery connector from the logic board to avoid any electrical discharge. This step is optional and is not required.

  • Use the flat end of a spudger to lift the battery connector up out of its socket on the logic board.

Step 4 RAM Installation  ¶ 

  • Release the tabs on each side of the module by simultaneously pushing each tab away from the RAM.

  • These tabs lock the module in place and releasing them will cause the module to "pop" up.
