(Ist time, got spudger tool) Instructions say pull up disconnect but I have problem
pushing down to connect. For hard drive (square black) connector, does top part have to perfectly line up with motherboard part?
I cannot "see" connection alignment since its done underneath/internally.
This requires lots of fine motor coordination which I don't have.
Do I need a magnifying glass/loupe? Should I bring to a jeweler? I got this back from mac repairman after he didn't connnect cpu fan. This is even more difficult than the hard drive connector.
