Using the spudger again, carefully pry from the top of the camera to remove the back frame. The back frame is fragile, so use the spudger gently.

Use the spudger tool to go around the seam  of the top panel. The top should easily lift off.

Hey Steven! This is all wrong! That's not the wright order: actually the top panel is the first part that can be removed, you don't need to tear down the rear panel and the front handgrip.. (it also may cause the damage of the rear panel!).

So, in order to remove the top panel just follow this order:

STEP 2

STEP 5 (Just the upper screw (not that one between HDMI and USB port)

STEP 6 (Just the two 4mm screws)

STEP 10

STEP 12

Its a lot easier ;)
