How hard is the Yoga hinge replacement?

OK, posted yesterday about my Yoga 710 corner of the screen. I've determined that the left hinge is the culprit, so I am considering doing the hinge replacement myself to save money and time without my machine. I'm wondering if anyone has replaced the hinges, and if so, how difficult is it? In the manual (p. 56-7) it looks like I would need to remove a lot of the bits to change the hinges.

But I also saw someone else say in an old posting somewhere that you don't need to do all of these steps.

 

Thanks for the help,

Re: How hard is the Yoga hinge replacement?

I have never seen the hinge itself fail.  On the ones I've seen the failure was the mounting point inside the lid.  To replace the lid, you need to remove everything.  From what I remember, the front cover should have enough room to come off with the screen attached, though you may need to loosen the hinge from the base on the other side.  Often, when I save time by skipping steps, it ends up taking longer.  Whatever you do, be sure to disconnect the battery before you start messing with the LCD cables
