First, pry off the outer yellow casing using the blue plastic prying tool provided in the kit. Wedge the flat edge of the pry tool in the slit and use leverage to push the casing upwards and pop it off in multiple places across the top and side of the device. This should reveal the inner workings of the tablet, be careful as the volume and power buttons may fall out in the process. The speaker will also still be attached to the case by wires as shown.

First, peel the clear yellow tape off to detach the battery from different wires and the metal. Next, peel the battery off the double sided tape to remove it from the metal. Both the battery and and the motherboard will still be attached to some wires, these wires are soldered connections, do your best to avoid breaking these connections.
