When stretched, the adhesive strips I removed where quite long, probably 7-8 inches (stretched). Saying “many times its original length” leaves it too vague. You have to pull with constant, not abrupt, tension. Also, Pay attention to advice not to get the strips twisted, but to keep them flat…and not to pull at an angle where they can rub against and get caught on other board components.
If you do remove the display, it is helpful before removing the four diffferently sized screws to tape down a piece of masking tape, sticky side up, and remove them in a defined order, sticking them to the tape as you go. Then there’s no chance of mixing them up when you re-assemble.
