Does anyone know where I can find detailed instructions for changing out the full screen assembly on a MacBook Air? I have the full screen assembly part to install because mine is cracked and is half in the dark.  I'd like to swap the full display but I can't find any documentation anywhere. Can someone point me in the right direction or provide this for me? I'd rather have that info before I start breaking this thing down.
Thanks!

I found this link as well, but I was hoping to find something that was directed right to the screen. This tells you how to remove a lot including the case but not the screen.

Always hit ifixit.com for this stuff.  They haven't done a specific screen replacement guide, but here is a detailed teardown: http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/First-Look/MacBook-Air/598/3

Wow that was a pain! I'm finished, I had to tear the macbook Air all the way down to remove the LCD. In order to get to the screws the main board had to come out. Anyway, I did use your link GreatGerm, and it's now working perfectly thanks for the responses.
