Locate the two plastic clips holding the bottom and back cover together. Which clip you remove first is up to you. Rotate the device 90 degrees either left or right. Insert the flat end of a spudger horizontally between the back speaker and the back cover. Place the flat end of the spudger behind one clip and pry it open. This may take repeated attempts.

  • Once a clip has been removed, hold the bottom cover open so the clip will not fall back into place. One clip remains to be removed; you are almost there!
