    • Insert a plastic opening tool between the back cover and rear case at the lower left edge of the back cover.

    • Work the plastic opening tool across the top of the back case to free the plastic clips.

    • The top edge of the back case is very thin. Pry carefully to avoid cracking or snapping it.

    • Pull the back cover away from the phone to remove it.

    • The back cover is attached to the battery with a generous amount of adhesive, so you may have to use quite a bit of force to separate the two pieces.

    • The battery must remain in the phone and not come off with the back cover or you will break the power lead.

    • Since the back cover is made of Kevlar, it can handle a fair amount of twisting and tugging without breaking.

Conclusion

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