How to disassemble a 23" Apple Cinema Display (A1082)?

Text:

My display is intermittently not lighting usually after waking from deep sleep and seems to be getting worse.  I've isolated it to the monitor not the video card. Apple wants ~$800 to repair it but I can find displays on eBay for $100-300, some with destroyed cases.  If I purchase one of these how do I install it in my current housing?  There are no obvious ways into the aluminum case (no screws I can see). I'm an engineer and have no qualms about opening it but I'd like some direction on how not to damage the case when opening it.
