    • Use the J0 Philips Head Screwdriver to remove the 5 6mm screws.

    • Be careful not to detach the pink wires when removing the gold charging conductors.

    Note that the first image here has 5 marked circles, which seem to show the positions of the 5 screws mentioned in this step—but they do not. There is no screw in the middle-left circle. Instead, the fifth screw is in line with that circle, but approximately 3 cm farther up the remote (to the left in the photo).

    The second image, showing a screwdriver, is unscrewing that fifth screw. There is no sixth screw, as the photos might suggest.

    • Pull the circuit board off of the remote from the bottom, and lift up to detach it from the cover.

      • It can be difficult to detach the circuit board without damaging the connectors. If you just need access to the keypad, lift the board up starting with the bottom, until you can hinge the top end off. Use a tool or pick to hold the board up until you replace it.
