Remove the 13 screws found on the back of the phone. The screw circled in red is shorter than the other 12 screws. For an easier time when reassembling the phone, store it separately from the other screws.

Only the bottom 6 screws (below the battery contacts)need to be removed since your only removing the bottom panel.
