  • First, remove the faceplate from the 360.

  • Just grab a part from the top and pull, it wont break. Remove the faceplate as shown on the first picture

  • The holograph sticker is the warranty seal. If you value your warranty, don't break it as you can NEVER SEND IT TO MICROSOFT AGAIN!

  • With the faceplate off of the 360, find a small hole on the front of the 360 without the faceplate and stick a paperclip in the hole(on mine its under the x).

  • Mine did NOT have the emergency eject hole so some wont and some will.

  • After you get the game out of the 360, push the tray back in.
