    • Lift the DC-In board out of the computer by pulling up and away from you.

    • If you don't have a 667 MHz computer, there is a fan in this location which makes it a bit difficult to remove the DC-In board.

    • If there is a fan present, rotate the DC-In board slightly clockwise before easing it out at a slight angle in order to clear the fan clamp on top of it.

  21. PowerBook G4 Titanium DVI Display Replacement, Modem Filter Board: step 21, image 1 of 1
    • Before continuing, place a soft cloth on your work surface to rest the computer on. Turn the G4 over and place it on the cloth.

    • Disconnect the four indicated connectors from the logic board.

    • The large multicolor cable may be difficult to free.

    • The top center cable may not need to be disconnected to remove the modem filter board. It connects to the logic board fan to its immediate left, which is attached to the logic board itself.

  27. PowerBook G4 Titanium DVI Display Replacement: step 27, image 1 of 1
    • Disconnect the 5 indicated connectors from the logic board, removing tape as necessary.

    • Reassembly Tip: Reseating the logic board will be much easier if you use kapton tape to hold these five connectors out of the way until it is in place.

    • Caution: If taping the connectors back, be careful not to use tape with anything but very weak adhesive (i.e. kapton tape). Even electrical tape can pull the paint off the hinges when removed.

  28. PowerBook G4 Titanium DVI Display Replacement: step 28, image 1 of 1
    • Carefully lift the logic board up and pull it away from you.

    • This step requires some force, but if the logic board will not come up, make sure that you have removed all the necessary screws and connectors. Warming the heatsink with a heatgun or blow dryer will help release the logic board.

    • On 800 MHz and above G4s, you must disconnect the fan cable from the logic board before you lift the board entirely off.

  38. PowerBook G4 Titanium DVI Display Replacement: step 41, image 1 of 1
    • Open the display to a 90 degree angle. Rest the trackpad face down on your work surface and allow the display to hang over the edge. If possible, adjust your chair or worksurface height so the display will rest on your legs and the trackpad will lie flat on the worksurface.

    • Remove the four T8 Torx screws which fasten the display to the trackpad. The screw closest to the display data cable has a tapered head.

  39. PowerBook G4 Titanium DVI Display Replacement: step 42, image 1 of 1
    • Grasp the metal heat exchanger and pull up and away from you. You may need to move the inverter cable on the right side of the computer in order to rotate the heat exchanger.

This walk through is almost useless: it makes something long and complicated out of something simple and easy. The only thing you have to take out is the logic board in order to access the back of the display attachments. The heat exchanger may stay in too. Just be careful with the screen wires.

Same here. This guide may be using imagery from the pre-A1025 model PowerBook G4 Titanium’s, which would explain this discrepancy.
