Teardown Update: Whoops! According to Oculus, you can shuck the IR sensor's cowling by pulling the stand hardware off. When we got our second unit we took some channellocks and a vice grip to it and were able to free the hardware from the camera assembly.

Still, some disassembly instructions would have been nice!
