Default Need good tutorial on replacing laptop backlight

HP dv7 1133cl

I found a couple YouTube videos, but none with actual instructions (audio or text), so I can't really tell what they're doing.

I'm a real novice, but I can do anything with good instructions. I've already replaced a number of parts in this machine (using good instructions). I'll only have my cell phone screen to follow while doing it, so I'll need clear instructions and probably illustrations. Pictures I can zoom in on, clear language for a dummy who doesn't know techie lingo, step-by-step directions, and maybe some references like "be careful not to touch xyz," or "don't press too hard 'here'" kinda' stuff would be great.

Anyone know where I can find such a tutorial?

I don't know how to delete the thread, so I'll update it instead.

I think I found a good tutorial here:
Laptop Repair Help Ľ How to replace laptop backlight lamp (CCFL)

It seems what I need now are instructions on how to get the display out, and then back into the case. Instruction links on the site above are for different manufacturers.
