  • Remove the four Torx T5 screws securing the midframe plate.

Step 4, there are also 2 T shaped tabs on the sides locking the mid frame plate. Above them you can see an angled hole where you can insert a paper clip to push them out and up to unlock them.

  • Remove the midframe.

There's two clips to the left and the right of the midframe. Use a SIM tool and insert them into the holes above the clips, and push the clips out from the inside. Once both have been pushed the midframe is released.

Where the sesamo in the picture is pushing against is actually part of a seperate plastic assembly. You get most torque and the most control by inserting the sesamo between the plastic of the front frame and the assembly the speaker is sitting in, just behind where the knife is in the picture.
