    • This photo shows the location of the ten clips that hold the lower case in place. Take note of the location of the clips, and refer back to this step if your lower case gets stuck during removal.

    • Four clips hold the upper half of the case in place and can be released by prying around them with a spudger.

    • The other six clips along the bottom edge can not be released by prying at them. Instead, they come free by sliding the whole case upward, as shown in step 5 below.
