How to replace LCD screen on Canon SD870IS

A complete LCD unit costs over $80.00 usually. A LCD sheet only costs half. If you have a cracked LCD with backlight working, what you need to do is to change the LCD sheet only. Just a little more work can save your money.
This is a Canon SD870IS.
Remove the battery and 6 screws around the camera, then take off the front and back covers.
Remove 2 screws and take off the bracket.
