The //c is designed to be popped open. Remove the 6 screws as described. Flip the handle down and tip the //c 3-4 inches over a hard surface and let it drop. The handle will pop the rear catches off safely.

It looks and sounds scary but it's how Apple trained dealer techs to open the machine. There isn't anything in a //c that is shock sensitive.

Just wanted you to know that your method is superior. I repair a lot of Apple IIC. Spudger method always results in broken plastic tabs. Your method never results in any damage.

Wow! Worked perfectly as described — and nothing broke. Hard to imagine I always had used steps 2, 3 (after removing the ports cover) and 4 in the past. Thanks, Sean!
