    • Use the spudger to separate the back plate from the rest of the computer with the screen up like in the picture.

    • Once the back plate is loose, close the screen for an easier time properly removing it.

  2. Using a Phillips Head #1 screwdriver, unscrew the 15 screws on the bottom of the device
    • Using a Phillips Head #1 screwdriver, unscrew the 15 screws on the bottom of the device

    • After all the screws are unscrewed, remove the bottom plate

    • Keep track of all the screws and which slot they came from, as they slightly differ. We recommend this system: lay out on a piece of paper and pretending the paper is the device. Place the screws on the paper approximately where they would go.

    • Locate the battery

    • Wedge the spudger underneath the battery, and apply pressure to lift it away from the rest of the device.

    • Gently pull and wiggle the multiple colored wired connector out from the socket.

Conclusion

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.
