Hi frozensun,

 

Greetings.

 

The part is recommended for a field technician so tools and skills are expected but with review and guide from the hardware manual, this is possible with review and patience.

 

It would be a challenge since this would include removing other parts first so having a recording of what goes out so that getting parts back will not be an issue.

 

If you do not have the tools and in doubt, then having a service tech work on the machine should be the option.

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards

I've read the manual but I haven't seen how to remove that plastic cover,

On what page of the manual is it?

I ask just out of curiousity because I'm not planing to do it by myself.

Hi frozensun,

 

Greetings.

 

Removing the upper case would include almost most of the parts on the manual going from bottom cover down to the motherboard that is why it is truly a challenge similar to this discussion.  

 

Example of a sample video here.

Still on that video I don't see how the front plastic can be replaced.
If all the components must be unplugged and taken out then really I wouldn't risk.I'd leave the old original front cover.
So all the components must be taken out to be able to replace front plastic cover?

Hi frozensun,

 

If you start removing most of the parts as shown in the manual, it would just leave you with one main structure which is the upper case cover.

 

Here the upper case cover serve as a foundation of the structure instead of the bottom cover and the more reason OEM prescribes that a field certified tech for the model perform the disassembly. They as trained to replace parts for such designs.

Hi All, 

 

The manual on page 50 does have steps removing the top LCD plastic cover and succeeding page for other LCD parts.

This sample video can help as reference.
