Whenever you use the spudger near the battery, be very careful not to puncture the battery.

Slide the point of a spudger in the crevice underneath the black tape bridging across the battery and the motherboard.

Slide the spudger along the crevice to pry up the tape from the battery side.

Carefully peel the tape from the battery and fold it out of the way.

The tape acts as a cooling pad for the motherboard and the battery. It will still work if it's torn.
