  1. There is a screw under the shiny UL sticker. Remove sticker and screw to remove this bottom panel. There are two tabs holding the panel into clock/light, so you might have to wiggle panel forward and out to remove it. The bottom panel does not help gaining access to more screws. See next step

    There is one screw under this tab that's hold the front ring attached in fact. I guess you should have removed it too before prying this ring open

Awesome teardown except for one little thing…

The factory sticker shows this is a 3530 which may not be different from a 3520. However, the bottom plate screw MUST be removed in order to separate the two halves. It is a little confusing saying “The bottom panel does not help gaining access to more screws. See next step.” I took that as being unnecessary, so skip.

The first photo of step 5 is a little misleading, it looks like you are unscrewing something, it made me look for the screws

Other than that this was very helpful, thank you
