Why remove the entire motherboard just for the upper screen? That seems completely unnecessary; just be careful with the heat gun.

Bryan Haley - Ответить

Tehy remove the whole motherboard because if you pay attention ribbon cables attaching things from the top to the bottom, like the ribbon cable for the lcd that you cant remove from its socket without removing the other parts. They even have pictures on these guides… just focus a little more on paying attention and you will be alright
