And unless you'd recently done the full CVV replacement, I'd think about that. I guess you could really go crazy replacing stuff there just to be sure!
I went fairly slow and piece by piece making sure I knew I would be able to put back what I took off. I didn't think it was that bad a all. Very doable.
