PSA: Double check the Touchpad side of your Touchpad Cable after opening your system

There is also the issue of what batch your laptop is. Mine already has the fix that tapes the ribbon cable in properly, and makes it (more) difficult to pull out.

I’m batch 2.

  1. Only Disconnect and connect the end that goes into the Mainboard.

When I was working through Keyboard Replacement Guide - Framework Guides step 5. asks the user to remove the end attached to the touchpad. Doing so has burnt out two cables for me now. Is there a guide for how to make sure this piece is aligned properly and/or if the slot is possibly damaged? Should the keyboard guide be updated to not ask for this cable to be unplugged from the touchpad to avoid this issue?
