Took out a strip of "felt" a quater inch think running the length of the heatsink!!! If you have a Toshiba repair center somewhere in your location, I would recommend taking the laptop there instead of shipping directly to Toshiba. I have full coverage, including accidental. I didn t have to separate the CPU from the heatsink, just open the lock and place the whole piece carefully, turn the locking screw..
I would guess you need this antenna just in case if the main antenna cable is damaged, not sure. Is this unusual considering it's new? All you have to do: remove the keyboard securing strip (be careful because it’s connected to a control board, do not pull too hard), remove the keyboard (4 screws).
