Why in the world do this step? Just disconnect from the old cable below the the screen and reconnect there. This seems like a risky step. It took me a minute to reconnect to the new cable but I had video recorded the area while moving it slowly so I could see how to put it back in place. This has been a wonderful help. Can't thank you enough.
After reading everyone's comments, I used the narrow spudger and slid it around from the front to the right then the front to the left and it lifted up easily..
