Nice job.

Thanks, there were a couple of tricky parts. Luckily my son had a #6 Torx Security driver.
I had a #6 torx (star driver) but it wasn't the "Security" type with the hole in the middle. That is really ridiculous!

Also, check the Step 23 (in the ifixit guide[^]). You need a special wire tool to stick in those two holes so you can pry the mainboard out of the case. It is really ridiculous.
I didn't notice I needed a special tool until I got to that step and the thing was already torn apart.
I walked around the house trying to find something with wire that was the correct size that I could use and finally found a spring on an old chip clip. I cut the thing with some tin snips and somehow got it to work. That step is another ridiculous part of the tear down.
