    Does anybody know how to do this? Links, Pictures any of these would be helpful. It's not actually for me it's for a friend but my local Apple store said it would be around the £100 mark for labour alone. Also my mate has Apple Care will this void it?

    (it's for a white Intel iMac)

    Thanks.

    My understanding is that the glass pops right off with suction cups.

    Awesome thanks, anyone know if this will void the warranty or if Apple can tell?

    Depends, what is currently wrong with it? If it's just the front panel and you don't stuff anything up then they shouldn't notice and you can get away with it but *technically* it should void teh warranty.
