The battery in the third generation iPad is very firmly glued to the aluminum frame using copious amounts of strong adhesive.

In the following steps, you will be removing the adhesive from underneath the battery 2 inches at a time. This will prevent too much stress being put on the battery.

Be very careful to not puncture or damage the battery as you remove it from the iPad. Batteries contain toxic chemicals that can be harmful if ingested or inhaled.
