    It’s worth mentioning that there is a part of the device casing, accessible from the back, that can be removed but has very fragile retaining clips.

You must remove the case from the screen side.

Step 1 you have to show the back cover to remove. Showing the front side is confusing.

After step 4 there should be a step 5 to show how to disconnect the white connector with the colored wires: it took time to discover that you have to lift the 2 side clips, and not to pull…

Just followed your instructions. Used a online kit with a guitar pick-like spudger. Had to wrestle with it slightly, but everything worked out perfectly to your instructions.

Followed the instructions. Worked nearly perfectly. The last step is a bit tricky. Just look at the new battery to understand the system.
