First start by peeling off the outer rubbery covering on the bottom of the device.
CAUTION: This part is very fragile, so it is recommended that a blow dryer is used on the covering to heat it up. Simply blow dry the covering while slowly peeling it away, and the covering will not tear.
There are two clips attached to the upper and lower ends of the WiFi card
CAUTION: For the following step, do not pull the clip after you have detached it. The clip is fragile and too much force may cause the clip to break.
Grab the end of one of the clips and pull away from the WiFi card. This should make the clip visibly detached from the WiFi card.
Do the same for the other clip.
