    • Unscrew and remove six Torx T10 on the rear.

    • Lever the rear cover off. It will most likely be quite stuck and you will need to apply some force. You must use plastic lever tools to prevent damaging the cover.

  3. Press carefully into the slits on the sides using a minus screwdriver or a flat metal spatula, to release the clasps on the upper surface. These may be well tight and you have to use some force. You should have created a separation between the upper surface and side panels. Now lever the upper covering away using a plastic tool. This may be quite stuck and you may apply some force.
