  2. Gently bend the Jimmy outwards to pry the crack open a little larger and lift the lower housing up a small amount. There are several plastic clips on the lower housing that fit into a channel in the aluminum top housing. Your goal is to use the Jimmy to push these clips inward enough to free them from the channel, while gently pulling up on the lower housing.

Hello Mate. Unfortunately the guide I followed to replace the HDD on my Core2 Duo mini didn’t day anything about the antennas getting totally disconnected from the combo board. I tried using your photos of the connectors but I am still unclear as to which connects where. In your photo will you please reference which one goes to the right side connector, which goes to the top lef, and which goes to the bottom left?

Thank you

the bluetooth antenna can only go one way. the wifi goes to the one that has two next to each other, closest one to the back of computer. then you have a BT antenna that goes NEXT to it, and it mounts closest to back of computer. The BT that mounts closer to the side, it mounts on the front of the computer. both BT mount on the same side the wifi on the other by itself. Its not the end of the world if you get these wrong, you just won’t get perfect coverage, but you’ll connect. Ive used these antennas on MacBook pros with the screens taken off (because the antennas for them are IN the screen)
