    • Use a spudger to remove the battery from the back panel.

    • If at all possible, please try to use a regular nylon spudger before resorting to a metal spudger. Metal spudgers are much sharper, and have the potential to accidentally pierce the battery.

    • There is a strong adhesive holding the battery to the back panel.

    • This step is not a prerequisite for replacement of other components.
