The "connective surface" is the antenna which is just stuck on the lid with adhesive tape. Pull the old one off and stick the new one on - it comes with the lead attached. They're typically sold in packs of two with different colored and lengths of lead. Use whichever one you like, the antennas are the same.

The main thing to watch for is the routing of the cables, especially the display cable, through the hinge. Pay VERY close attention to how it is routed before removing and make sure you put it back the same way or else you could end up pinching or breaking the display cable.
