Wedge a plastic opening tool into the lower right corner of the Kindle Fire.
Pry the case apart and run the plastic opening tool along the perimeter of the Kindle Fire to release the clips securing the case halves to each other.
If you are having extreme difficulty inserting the plastic opening tool, carefully use a metal spudger to undo the first clip, then switch back to the opening tool to avoid scratching your case.
It is helpful to pry the bottom of the Kindle Fire away (and out from the side) from the top part. Exerting too much force attempting to split the two without pulling away can cause the tabs on the inside to crack.
Fit the tip of the plastic opening tool between the right battery cell and the Kindle Fire's frame.
Lever the battery up and work the plastic opening tool down along its edge to release the glue securing it to the frame.
