In this step, you will use the rotary tool to make a thin cut in the stripped screw that enables you to use a flathead screwdriver to remove the screw.
We recommend using a low power setting (we used 2 out of 6) to prevent damaging the rest of the device or the screw.
You want the cut to be deep enough that you can fit a flathead screwdriver into it, but thin enough that the screwdriver has something to grip.
Make a single thin cut into the head of the stripped screw.
