Remove 2 hidden Phillips 8.25 mm screws located underneath the rubber grips at the back (opposite the hinges) with the  Phillips #0 screwdriver. The rubber grips are glued in place, so you'll need to peel them up with a spudger or other pry tool.

does the cb30-b-103 battery also work with the cb30-b-104 series?

I had four screws holding down battery.

When re-installing cover, don’t get confused. There are two holes under rubber feet on side CLOSEST TO HINGES. These do not accept the two screws - put them on side AWAY FROM HINGES.
