Steps to remove the bottom plate from the device.

The bottom plate consist of 9x 4mm screws. Remove these first. There are no hidden screws under the rubber feet.

Using a spudger, insert it in between the bottom plate and the palmrest assembly. Gently rotate the spudger to loosen the clips holding the bottom plate into place around the perimeter of the device. Once you go around the entire outside of the bottom plate the plate should lift free.
