This guide explains how to remove the trackpad plate from the Asus G53JW-A1. This is a prerequisite for many other tasks, including RAM replacement, hard drive replacement, and screen replacement. The keyboard needs to be removed prior to completing this task.

  1. There are five tabs underneath the keyboard that hold the keyboard in place along the top edge. Refer to the photo for a rough idea of the location of these tabs. Using the spudger and iFixit Opening Tool at the indicated locations, pry the keyboard directly up. Ensure that the tools reach under both the plastic keyboard cover and the metal base of the keyboard, as both will be removed. Once you have a few tools in place, it's possible to slide your tool along the underside of the keyboard and unclip all of the tabs at once.
