How to replace the keyboard on an IdeaPad Y530


How do I get access to remove the keyboard on a Y510 or Y530 model IdeaPad?  I know they are mechanically very similar.


Unplug laptop and remove battery.


1) With small screwdriver inserted between F2 and F3 keys, gently pry up plate above keyboard.
