Step Lines

-[* icon_caution] Don't pry under the topmost section of the battery, near the volume up button and mute switch, or you may damage the [guide|31183|audio controls cable|stepid=74381|new_window=true], which is adhered to the rear case just beneath the battery.
-[* icon_caution] ***Do not*** pry against the logic board, or you may permanently damage your iPhone.
-[* icon_note] Alternatively, a piece of dental floss may be used to separate the battery from the rear case. A stronger alternative to dental floss is an unwound guitar string, such as a 0.009 E string from a 12-string set.
-[* black] Thread the floss or string underneath one end of the battery and pull side to side in a sawing motion to separate the adhesive.
-[* black] If any of the adhesive strips broke off and the battery remains stuck to the rear case, [guide|11677|prepare an iOpener|new_window=true] or use a hair dryer to heat the rear case directly behind the battery.
