    Does taking the front glass off of the imac display to clean behind it void the warranty? I am noticing some particles behind the glass and would just like to do it myself. I am still under warranty but i dont feel like bringing my imac to the store if i dont have to.

    That typically will void any warranty that you do have.

    Theoretically, I suppose it does. However, it's not a difficult job to remove the glass, and providing you don't physically damage anything, who's to know?

    Just removing the glass won't automatically void your warranty, but if you do any damage to your iMac whilst doing it (or with the front off), it won't be covered by your warranty.
