Parts

No parts required.

    • Use a spudger to remove the base cover from the rest of bottom cover.

    As it is not clearly visible in the picture: You should start to open the base cover at the screen side, to avoid breaking the plastic guides of the base cover. A flat dough scraper is a pretty good tool for that.
