    • DO NOT USE A METAL TOOL FOR THIS.

    • Go all around the casing, prying the screen away from the backing with the spudger.

    • It will make a popping sound each time one of the lock tabs is disconnected.

    • Take your time as you move all around the device when prying the backing off.

Does this guide apply to all variants of this model? The S6000L frame doesn't seem to pop away from the screen assembly the same way. Is there adhesive in any of the models?

Can you recommend a professional who can help replace my Lenovo S600 battery.

The original Lenovo battery comes with the metal frame. In my case, the screw holes of the metal frame did not fit the screw holes of the base. Thus, I just pulled the new battery off its metal frame and just replaced the battery.
