I am trying to replace a broken hinge on an X60 Tablet. The service manual specifies a list of parts to be removed in order to access the "hinge and microphone cable" (FRU 2060). I have removed 1010, 1040, 1050, 1080, 1120, and I think 1090, 1100, 1130 don't apply for my machine, but now I am stuck on 1170 ("LCD assembly"). I cannot see how to remove this, because it is connected to the body by a thick cable (presumably the video cable), which I can't disconnect because it runs under the LCD extend board. Looking at the pictures in the manual it seems as if the LCD extend board (1070) should have been removed at some stage, but the list doesn't explicitly say to do that, and it seems surprising for there to be a mistake; am I missing something?
If I do have to remove the LCD extend board, any suggestions for how to get those screws out? I have some "precision screwdrivers" which look to be the right size, but all they are doing is stripping the heads.
