    • Starting on the edge, that is opposite the hinge, use plastic opening tools to pry the back plate away from the computer.

    • Loosen the three non-hinge edges.

    • Leave a plastic opening tool in the corners to ensure that one side does not snap close before you are done opening the others.

    • DO NOT lift the back plate away from the computer; it is still connected to the motherboard.

    • To loosen the back plate, lift it very slightly, and gently pull it away from the hinge.

    • Flip the back plate open, towards the power button, making certain to not pull on the ribbon cable that connects the back plate to the motherboard.

    • Use a plastic opeining tool to detach the side of the ribbon cable connected to the computer by prying up gently on the small black lever at the point of attachment.

    • Remove the (4) 3mm Phillips 0 screws connecting the battery to the computer.

    • As you are pulling the battery away from the computer, unplug it from the side furthest from the long edge of the computer.
