Apple Powerbook G4, A1085 - how to replace the entire screen assembly

Hi,  I have two of these , and I need to get one working!

The screen on this one is dappled, as if moisture has somehow got it, and is quite distracting.
My other one came back from the repair shop in  bits.. logic board problem, apparently.

So, I'm thinking of switching the  screen assembly from the dead unit, and switching it for this one.  
Can anyone point me to a suitable tutorial?  All the ones I've seen so far cover the replacement of the screen, rather than the whole unit.
It looks like it COUld be as simple as removing these two screws that line up with the hinge...

Anyone?
