Now for the prying bit. Ready your barrage of prying tools! I used plastic spudgers, metal spudgers, plastic cards, and X-ACTO knifes to get this open.

The gap between the aluminum shell and plastic rear plate was so tight I had to use an X-ACTO knife with square-headed No. 18 Blade to widen the gap enough to slide in my metal spudger.

Important note: Don't ever pry with an X-ACTO knife, the blades are not meant for prying. If you pry with them, they will crack and can potentially cut into your hand.
