Does anyone know how to remove the LCD panel from a Vaio TZ?
There don't seem to be any screws in place, but I'm hesitant to just pry things apart for fear of breaking anything.
I tried to find a disassembly guide on the net, but they all only cover the main body, but not the LCD...

Check out the guide at the top of the forum here (the "sticky" at the top of the threads); see if that gets you anywhere.

Yeah, I've been there already.
Removing the LCD screen when there are screws on the bezel is very straight forward. However, there are no screws - and no hidden places where they could be, like under rubber pads, either. So one will have to disengage some locking tabs or something. But I'd rather not experiment as I want it to look as it does now when I put it all together again...

Thanks for that, I've been there as well. His manuals only cover the disassembly of the main body, not the screen unit itself...

Finally found out how to do it:
Put a very thin spudger in the little slit between the bezel and frame, unclip indents.
Most difficult bit: to remove the right hand side hinge. I put a thin piece of plastic from a drinks bottle in between the first clip and then a thin screwdriver in the slit to undo the other one.
You can then take the bezel off completely. No screws. LCD panel then just comes out and you can unplug it.
