Removing the bottom cover/door of the system is the first step in accessing the rest of the internal components of the system. After removing the screws, the cover is just held in place physically by its plastics, so be firm, but gentle, when removing it after loosening the connections.

    Is there a little more detail on where to start prying?? I have this laptop and want to swap to an SSD but I am scared s**tless about opening it up and breaking clips in the process… I looked and looked and every guide blows past this step… PLEASE help!

    Thanks!!
