    • Insert an opening pick between the head strap adjust knob and the head strap.

    • Gently pry the head strap adjust knob off of the head strap.

    • Hold the knob with your other hand to prevent it from flying away from your work surface.

    • To reinstall, simply press the knob back into place.

Conclusion

Compare your new replacement part to the original part—you may need to transfer remaining components or remove adhesive backings from the new part before installing.

To reassemble your device, follow the above steps in reverse order.

Take your e-waste to an R2 or e-Stewards certified recycler.
