Hello, I have ordered a replacement camera for my Mavic due to the original having a mis-aligned lens causing a portion of the recording always out of focus. I haven't received the shipment yet but I was looking at my Mavic and was wondering if someone has any advice for doing this repair in the correct manner.

I see two screws that appear to hold the camera module to the gimbal, and I see in the photo for the camera module there is a ribbon cable inserted into the camera's cable clamp. Am I to assume that I can simply remove the two camera module screws and then separate it from the gimbal module? Or do I need to remove the entire camera/gimbal unit to create slack in the ribbon cable and only then separate the camera module?

Any advice would be appreciated!

Thanks buddy. It looks very simple from the image of the camera module, its just I don't know if I need to drop the whole camera/gimbal out first due to my uncertainty regarding the ribbon cable, or can I just drop the camera with the gimbal in place. The ribbon is clamped in an edge connector on the underside of the camera and I'm just not sure if it will let go.
