    Hi, I have HP dv6t-6b00. Looks similar to yours. The bezel cracked recently and I want to replace it. Seems as easy as removing the two screws that hold it, removing the bezel (steps 1-8) and then installing a replacement part. If the bezel is glued to the frame, what’s the procedure to install a new one? Does it come with new tape or should I reuse the old one? Thank you!
