The newer retina displays are very difficult to open without damaging, which is why you won't find a guide breaking it down. As you can see here in IFIXIT's attempt: [https://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/MacBook+Pro+Retina+Display+Teardown/9493|MacBook Pro Retina Display Teardown]. It's not worth it! The display afterwards won't be as good as you'll likely damage the sheets or leave marks.
