What will I need:

    • 1 x white cable with blue connectors
    • 1 x black cable with red connectors
    • 1 x black Bluetooth module
  • Screwdriver

Step 1: Unscrew the 7 screws from the back of the screen.

Step 2: Remove the back of the screen. Be careful to ensure the cables attached to the inside of the screen do not get caught. Ensure they are pulled all the way through the space on the back of the screen.

Step 3:  The back of the screen will also be attached with a black/red cable to the motherboard. Please unclip this from the blue clip on the motherboard. 

Step 4:  Put the back of the screen to the side for now.

Step 5:  On the new Bluetooth module, attach the black cable from the Bluetooth module pack to the most outer red clip on the new Bluetooth module.

Step 6: Select the thick black cable that is attached to the inferior edge of the back of the screen. This attaches to the green clip on the motherboard. Disconnect this from the green clip only. Leave the opposite end connected to the screen.

Step 7:  Select your new Bluetooth module and attach the free end of the black cable with red connectors into the now empty green clip on the motherboard.

Step 8:  On the new Bluetooth module, remove the 2 red spacers from inside the remaining red clip.

Step 9: The cable that was disconnected in Step 6, can now be attached to this red clip on the back of the new Bluetooth module. 

Step 10:  Unscrew the old Bluetooth module from the back of the screen. Please keep this screw safe to allow attachment of the new Bluetooth module.

Step 11: Detach the old Bluetooth module cable from both ends. One end is attached to the back of the old Bluetooth module and the other is connected to the dark blue clip on the motherboard. You do not need this cable anymore. 

Step 12: Select the white cable from the Bluetooth module pack. Attach one end of the white cable with blue connectors into the dark blue clip on the motherboard. Attach the other end into the blue clip on the back of the new Bluetooth module.

Step 13: Using the screw from Step 10, reattach the new Bluetooth module into the space where the old Bluetooth module was. Please ensure it is tight and secure. 

Step 14:  Connect the back of the screen back to the motherboard using the black cable to fasten into the blue clip.
