      • One 6 mm Phillips with a small head in the lower left corner.

      • Two 6 mm Phillips with large heads, one in the upper left corner and one in the middle

    • Before you can yank the upper case off, you must disconnect the trackpad connector, the blue and white power cable, and speaker cable as described in the next steps.

    • Lift the upper case from the right side and use a spudger or your finger to disconnect the trackpad connector hidden beneath the white plastic tab. Due to model variatons your trackpad connector may be different from the one pictured.

    • Carefully lift the upper case about half of an inch and move it so that you can access the power and speaker cables.

    • If the upper case is sticking, it may be necessary to free the tabs holding the upper case to the metal framework along the outer edge of the battery compartment.

    • The connectors at the ends of the cables are attached very firmly to the sockets on the logic board. Pulling directly on the cable will either separate the cable from its connector or the socket from the logic board.

    • Lift the upper case enough to disconnect the blue and white power cable from the logic board. Using your fingernails or a dental pick, carefully pry the connector from its socket. Make sure you're pulling only on the connector and not on the socket.

    • Lift the upper case off completely and disconnect the multicolored speaker cable from the logic board. As before, make sure you're pulling only on the connector and not on the socket.

    • Tip: the multi-coloured cable may be easier and less daunting to disconnect after removing the top heat shield. Prop the top case upright while removing the shield - the connector is then much more accessible.

    • Remove the following 15 screws:

      • Fourteen 3 mm Phillips.

      • One 5.5 mm Phillips in the upper left corner.

      • Mind the magnet position in the lower right corner

    • Lift the top shield up from the right side, minding the upper left corner, which may catch on the metal framework.

    • Turn the computer over.

    • Disconnect the inverter cable from the logic board and deroute it from the metal framework, removing tape as necessary.

    • Turn the computer back over.

    • The cable you're about to remove is very fragile - do not pull directly on the wires. Instead, try to pry up the connector directly, using a spudger or a small flathead screwdriver if necessary.

    • Disconnect the microphone cable at the front of the computer, between the left side of the hard drive and the metal framework, removing tape as necessary.

    • Use the black plastic handle to disconnect the display data cable from the logic board.

    • Peel up the yellow tape holding the display data cable to the metal framework and remove the single Phillips screw beneath it.

    • Support the display with one hand and remove the single Phillips screw on either side of the hinge (two screws total).

    • The screws go in the outer holes on each side (you can see the threads in the correct hole).

    • It may be necessary to unscrew one side of the optical drive for enough clearance to thread the AirPort antenna through the gap between the body of the optical drive and the iBook's internal frame.

    • When remounting, mind that cables pass under the hinge, not over

    • Tilt the display back, freeing it from the two metal alignment posts holding the hinges in place, and slide it away from you.

    • Use a 1.5mm hex screwdriver to remove the two hex screws on either side of the display (four screws total).

    • If you don't have a 1.5mm hex driver, you can probably get these screws out with a T6 Torx screwdriver. However, if you use a T6 Torx driver you'll be more likely to strip the screws.

    • Use your thumbs to slightly separate the rear bezel from the front bezel.

    • It is helpful to hold the opposing corner of the display stationary to aid in flexing the rear bezel away from the display.

    • Insert the flat end of a spudger into the gap between the front and rear bezels.

    • Rotate your spudger until it is parallel to the front face of the display.

    • Run the spudger around the perimeter of the display to separate the rear bezel from its retaining clips.

    • Lift the rear bezel off the display.

    • Remove the large piece of tape near the lower right corner of the display.

    • Remove the single screw inserted through the piece of EMI tape near the bottom edge of the display (it's the first of the two clutch cover screws).

I got all the way to step 45, before the guide mentions a 1.5mm hex wrench is needed. I wish it mentioned that on the list of tools required before I did all that work. To help others, I tried to add the tool to the list, but it was denied for some reason.
