It is not long enough to reach the screen when in view, so you have to unplug it from the logic board, shove it through, and pull it out on the screen's end in order to plug a new screen in. Even then, you need a tool of some sort to get it in. And even taped, it is very prone to falling out, it does not snap in securely at all. This is one of the many things that makes me scream when I read about how much better the unibody is than all of apple's older models. So non-service-friendly.
