A basic 3D model to print replacement standoffs for the back cover screws is [https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4226648 available on Thingiverse], until the official drawings or 3D models are made available.

'''Display Disassembly:'''
* Since it is not recommended to lift the lid while the bottom cover is removed it is better to do so while the laptop is still assembled. Position the computer carefully on the desk keyboard down, display lid facing down, and don't let it fall down.
* Alternatively you can try to open the lid with hinges fully unscrewed inside the main body, like it is described in [https://wiki.pine64.org/wiki/Pinebook_Service_Step_by_Step_Guides Pinebook Service Guides]
* Hinges and screws inside of lid are hidden behind plastic cover with latches. Gently pick it from the outer side with a guitar pick or a specialized plastic prying tool. Once the gap is large enough it is possible to remove it by hand.
* That u-shaped plastic cover is quite sturdy, but better not to bend it too much while removing; help freeing its latches with a tool while pulling it out so they don't break.
* On top of the screen there are 2 small screws hidden by rubber nubs. The frame around screen is being held not just with small latches but some adhesive too. Adhesive is not very strong and frame can bend to an extend without breaking. Pry it with a plastic tool from all sides!
* Left, right and top sides contain very small amount of adhesive; bottom part has a lot, so expect some resistance while it comes off.
