  • Once the screws are all out from the exterior back case, Begin separating the front housing from the back by using a spudger or any similar tool.

    • Begin from the bottom were the battery bay is, It is the easiest way.

  • Be careful of ribbons behind the plastic

  • Vibrator come's out easy, Just grab it by the wire and give it a little tug and it should come out.

  • Start unlocking the clips holding the ribbons. pull the white tab up to unlock.

    • Example: bottom left is unlocked, bottom right is locked. upper left has bin finished and removed.

  • Tuck the ribbons in without bending or making tears in them.
