  1. Missing how you have removed the small cable from the main board @ 3:11 on the video.

    Before the cut it's connected and at 3:11 it is away – so you don't show this action on the video. Finally I can't removed the main board.

    How should I remove id carefully? thanks

  8. But if even one of those springs pops off from the right or left bumpers, you are in a world of hurt.

    Update: I found that pinching the ends of said spring together prior to inserting the spring is required. No tweezers needed. Thanks for the vid!
