    • You may use your fingers, or a spudger. Be careful not to break your cover OR your fingernail. Removing the cover requires good judgement.

      • The goal is to separate the black from the silver. Start in a corner, or a flat edge -- whichever works best for you. Remember to not use too much force.

    • Remove the second clip underneath the ribbon clip.

    • When removing the second cable clip use a small flat head screw driver to lift the latch.

    • when removing be careful not to damage the ribbon cable.

    • Repeat step 6 for the large ribbon cable.

    • To remove the battery section of the device from the circuit board remove, use the small Phillips head screwdriver for the 3 small screws near the top.

    • To get the battery pack completely away from the circuit board there is copper foil on the back of the battery.

    • be careful not to rip the copper foil. Pull the foil slowly an evenly.

    • Now that the battery is all by itself find a non-sharp and thin object to help pry the battery from its base.

    • FINALLY you have successfully removed the battery from your device.
