    • The top edge of the rear case is lightly adhered to the frame.

    • Pull the top of the rear case away from the frame to separate the adhesive and release the remaining clips.

    • If you're having trouble separating the adhesive, use an iOpener, hair dryer, or heat gun to soften it.

    • Remove the rear case.

    • During reassembly, perform the following:

    • If you're using a using a genuine Samsung replacement rear case, be sure to peel off any adhesive liners from the rear case before securing the top edge's clips.

    • If you're reusing your rear case, you can use some pre-cut adhesive to re-adhere the top edge if your existing adhesive is no longer sticky.

    • This is a good point to power on your laptop and test all functions before sealing it up. Be sure to power your laptop back down completely before you continue working.
