I truly believe Apple goes out of their way to make it easy to damage while repairing.
I tossed a piece of tape on the connector just to be safe.
This step drew blood. Darn you Apple!
This did not work when running High Sierra.
Amazon or Ebay work. Just be sure your getting a screen with the proper resolution. You can inspect the connector to see what one you have if you dont know (the pin configuration is slightly diferent)
Thank you for this. I was getting REAL nervous as I got to the bottom portion of the screen. It really looks like the bottom is a separate panel (with screws under it) - Your photos assured me that it was not, so I gave it a little more and she came right off. Excellent work and photos!
[Only edit would be, no need to take the battery out, just disconnect]
