It may be possible to remove the battery simply by pulling on the plastic pull-tab. A slow continual pull seems to work best. If this is insufficient, proceed with the prying outlined in this step.

Use the plastic opening tool to gently pry the battery up, only at the three points shown. Prying anywhere else, especially near the clear plastic pull tab, may result in damage to the logic board.

Again, do not pry too hard, and only in the locations shown; well above and below the clear plastic pull tab. Otherwise, you may deform or puncture the battery or damage the logic board.

Be careful when prying at the top of the battery. Do not insert the opening tool more than 2 mm under the battery or you risk severing the volume control cables.
