Before doing this step, first remove the camera cover and the two t6 screws from the back (steps 5 and 6). Otherwise you will break the cover. This may be a factor only for some revisions (RM-304)

Step 5 and 6 must be performed before step 3, otherwise, you will dislodge the thread from the front plate. so you have to remove the camera cover first, remove the 2 screws then you can remove the front plate without breaking anything.
