  • Remove rubber screw covers from the LCD screen. They cover the screws. The stops on the top of the screen pop off, but the lower covers require a screwdriver to remove.

  • If you need to use the screwdriver to remove the rubber screw covers, gently push the screwdriver down the edge of the stopper and then use the screwdriver as a lever to pry the cover from the hole.

  • Remove the six 7.15mm screws underneath the stoppers. There are four on top and two on bottom.
