  2. Using plastic tools, you can start unclipping the hood from the front of the machine. Insert one opening tool and insert a second. Slide the tools around to pop off the bottom of the laptop. Do not insert your tool too deeply, to avoid hanging a clip. Do not unclip the back face fully; only the front and the two sides. You can nevertheless detach the 4 corners.
