    • Begin by working at the case on the rear where the warranty sticker is located. Insert the plastic opening tool into the gap between the bottom of the case and the grated top side. Then find the clips in between that hold the case in place. 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 the back where the warranty sticker is located. Pry along the rear edge until all clips are free. From there do each side. When three sides are free start at the end of the front opposite the sync button. Be cautious and take your time and all should separate without any damage.
