Replacing the wireless network card? (Lenovo ThinkPad SL-300 "NS64YMN")

Hi,

 

I ordered myself a Gigabyte Atheros 5802 Wireless Draft-N network card from OxfordTech, along with a third antenna to install into my Lenovo ThinkPad SL-300 "NS64YMN".. Unfortunately I didn't check whether it would be some issues regarding replacing the wifi card inside ThinkPad SL-300 before I placed my order..

 

Now I'm sitting here with my new antenna and card, but I don't really understand how to replace the Intel 5100 card?

For me it makes no sense whatsoever to not offer a somewhat easy replacement of the wireless card? But for some awkward reason this simple task seems almost impossible on the ThinkPad SL-300? We've got easy access to the WWAN, TurboMemory, it's also a somewhat easy access to the CPU, but no the wireless card nor it's antennas?

 

That's somewhat a huge disappointment for me.. Is there anyway to replace the wireless card without ripping the entire machine into hundred pieces?

The HMM for our SL300 is available from Lenovo Support page. I gives you the proper procedure for replacing the wireless card. Unfortunately the link isn't working properly. It states "File not found".
