Step 8: Antenna Cable Removal

Peel the tape off of the antenna connectors. When you're putting everything back together put it back in the same spot.

Use your fingernails to lift the small gold connector away from the wireless card connectors. 

Go ahead and disconnect the speaker connector. Take a small flat-head screwdriver and push the white part of the connector to the left out of it's beige socket.
<p>By the way, for the keyboard screws you need a Philips PH000 screwdriver. A PH00 won't work.</p>
<p>I've got this ph000 screwdriver<a href="http://www.amazon.co.uk/C-K-T4882X-000-Precision-Screwdriver/dp/B0052CEAES" rel="nofollow">http://www.amazon.co.uk/C-K-T4882X-000-Precision-S...</a> (The photo on amazon is wrong and shows a ph0) but it doesn't work for those tiny keyboard screws. Do you know if it could be because of the blade length? The one I've got is a ph000x60 which means that the length of the blade is 60mm. </p><p>Thanks!</p>
<p>I've ended up getting a WIHA PH000 x 40mm PicoFinish screwdriver and it works. I was finally able to replace the keyboard. Thanks for the instructions!</p>
You might try using the smallest flatheaded screw driver. If it doesn't fit file it down a tiny bit &amp; try again. <br><br>I find that big cheap sets of screw driver bits tend to be pretty low quality &amp; may not really be a 000.
<p>The PH000 I used was this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B005GOO7TA</p>
<p>is no ethernet port for ux21e, because no drivers for ux21e that i see here http://www.asfadriver.com/2016/01/asus-ux21e-drivers-download.html</p>
<p>The first time you remove the cover and see all the interior components you get a bit distressed. But with the tutorial actually it gets easy to take components apart and reach the keyboard. Maybe the hardest part of all is to plug back the mouse/trackpad connector. It took me several tries but in the end I made it.</p>
<p>Your post is full of knowledge. After going through this <br>step by step guide, it seems very easy to replace the keyboard.</p>
<p>Hi there, How do I ensure that I get the right keyboard fo my Asus? Where can I check my serial number? Thanks Peter</p>
<p>The part numbers that I have noted for the keyboard on *this* laptop are MP-11A93US6528 &amp; 0NK0-LX1US021e </p><p>I had to take apart the laptop to get at these numbers...</p>
you could change the title to &quot;replace anything in Asus UX21E&quot;. now i don't have to pick mine apart to check things
great info and pics! I didn't realize it was so hard to get to the keyboard!
