There are clips around the whole mid frame, holding down the back cover. Open all of them with the Opening Tool. When all clips are open, you can easily remove the back cover from the rest of the phone. We do not recommend to try to remove the back cover whilst you haven't opened all clips. They are very strong and you will risk to break the back cover.

The back panel is really really easy to brake, be careful :)

Use a tweezer to remove the warranty sticker which sits on a screw in the bottom right of your phone. Remove the 4 Torx T5 screws which hold down the lower part of the loudspeaker. Remove the three Phillips #000 screws which hold down the upper part of the loudspeaker.

The 4 screws wich hold down the lower part of the loudspeaker are Torx screws for me. But it's a French Huawei, doin' nothing like the others :)

Die Wasserschadenindikatoren sitzen unter dem Mainboard. Bei den Aufklebern auf den TORX handelt es sich um Garantiesiegel.
