Introduction

If you have a battery that is no longer in working order then you will need to replace the battery. It is not as simple as removing it after taking off the cover. You will need a couple removal tools for reaching the battery. There are no hazards for this particular repair.

Slide one of the plastic opening tools in the crack as shown in the first picture. Slide the other plastic opening tool facing the opposite way in the crack next to the first one and pry the back cover off a little bit at a time  or slide them around the edge as necessary. Finally, slide the two plastic opening tools all around the case until it is open.
