  • Use the opening tool to pop the clips out. The best method is to pry the black case away from the bottom.

  • You will hear clicking sounds when you are prying the case open. It may be fairly difficult to remove the bottom.

  • It's possible that the clips may break when you remove the bottom from the case.

  • We recommend starting at one corner and sliding the prying tool along the edges of the Xbox One S. Once the first few clips are opened you can lift the cover up to find the remaining clips.

I struggled with the retention tabs the first time I opened the Xbox S. I dabbed a little Armor All on a Qtip and coated both sides of tabs with a little. Popped right open the second time, wiped Armor All on the fan blades as well to minimize dust collection.
