    • Keep holding the partially separated panel open. It's easiest to do this by wedging a spudger into the opening but can also be held open by your hands.

    • Rotate the Xbox to the left to locate the clip connecting the front panel to the body. Insert the spudger inside the gap to release the clip. This may require wiggling the spudger. The clip will pop off, making the front panel looser.

    • Continue to run the spudger along the crease to release any further clips that may still be attatched.

    • Do not pull off the panel too fast because you don't want to damage the ribbon cable. Slowly pull away the panel.

    • Now that the front panel has been released from its clips you can pull off the front panel.

Where can I find a new ribbon cable for Xbox 360 e? In addition, can very minuscule damage to cable cause the power button to turn red?
