LCD “Bezel”: is the black plastic trim around the inside of screen as if your looking at the screen, with laptop open. There are no screws holding this lcd bezel in place, just snaps off & on by inside clips in the lid frame & bezel.

– Starting from one side of the screen, grab the inside plastic lcd black bezel, closest to the screen, get a few fingers under it (from screen side) and slowly pull up & towards you until the bezel pops loose. Work your way up to the top corner. Do the same across the top part of screen. Then work your way back down to the bottom near hinges. Get your fingers under the bottom middle where the Dell logo is at, pull back slowly until it pops loose. You might feel some resistance here from the plastic clips inside and sticky tape Dell used in this bottom area. Once you feel it pop loose, you know how the rest comes off. Remove bezel from lcd screen.
