Using the biggest plastic opening tool, pry open the GPS from the sides.  You should now be able to see everything inside the GPS. Be careful when opening the GPS because of the ribbon attached to the screen. It can tear easily. Be careful when opening the GPS because of the ribbon attached to the screen. It can tear easily.

Your sub-par tools broke when following the directions exactly. Last time I'll be purchasing any of your items, and Ill be disputing the charges on my card for this kit.

Thanks.

But before I get going, which model or type of battery do I need. Garmin does not seem to sell them separately as far as I can see.
