Translating step 5

Step 5
Our X-ray intelligence showed us some screws under the foot, so we concentrated our fire on the adhesive holding it down. Only after some serious heat-gunning were we able to slowly peel the foot up and off. Even knowing the screws are there, we're prepared for the worst, after that gooey chore... ...but are relieved to find those repair-friendly Torx screws ready to unscrew. Also under the glue-foot is a 14-pin port, probably used to test or program HomePods on Pogo pins during assembly.

X線画像によると、本体底にネジが留められているようです。そこで、フット部分の接着剤に向けて集中的に熱を当てました。ヒートガンから相当な熱が放たれた後、ゆっくりとフット部分が剥がれてきました。

ネジがここにあると分かっているものの、粘着力たっぷりの作業が終わった後は、最悪の事態も覚悟し始めました。

…しかし、そこには修理しやすいトルクスネジが使用されています。接着剤がついたフット部分には14ピンポートがあります。おそらく組み立ての際にポゴピンを接続して、HomePodをテストしたりプログラミングするために使用されるのでしょう。
