Gently pry the bezel off the screen using a spudger. It is easier to start in the corners and work your way around the bezel.
Do not insert the spudger too far under the bezel; it could easily damage the screen.
Unscrew the 11 Phillips 3.0 mm screws surrounding the frame.
At the top of the display, a black strip of tape covers one screw.
Lift the midframe out of the case.
If the midframe is stuck, slide it to the left first, and then lift it out.
Turn over the midframe to locate the battery.
Remove the three Phillips 3.0 mm screws securing the battery to the midframe.
