Squeeze the plastic opening tool in between the seam where the screen joins the plastic case. Begin separating the bottom of the case from the screen by carefully going around the whole edge of the case and slowly prying it apart. Be careful when separating the lids because the wires holding the speaker to the motherboard are very short.

Locate the white and gray connector that's holding the camera in place. Use the black nylon spudger to eject the camera from its slot by gently lifting the gray clip vertically 90°. Once ejected, you may easily remove the camera by pulling it from its slot.
