    • Then, gently, loosen the flex ribbon cables from their connectors with the Spudger Tool, and pull the flex cables away from the connectors.

  7. With Spudger Tool, gently press down on the Battery Holder from the topside until it become loose.  The Battery Holder, at this step, is held in place via an O-Ring. Once the Battery Holder becomes loose, gently pull it out the rest of way via the bottom of the ring camera enclosure. With Spudger Tool, gently press down on the Battery Holder from the topside until it become loose.  The Battery Holder, at this step, is held in place via an O-Ring. Once the Battery Holder becomes loose, gently pull it out the rest of way via the bottom of the ring camera enclosure.

  11. Loosen the two flex cables by using the Spudger Tool to pry up the flex connector tension strip.  Then use the Spudger Tool to pry up the four-wire connector cable. This cable will pop up from the connector
    • Loosen the two flex cables by using the Spudger Tool to pry up the flex connector tension strip. Then use the Spudger Tool to pry up the four-wire connector cable. This cable will pop up from the connector

  12. Remove the four PH00 screws holding the PCB in place.  Then use the Spudger Tool to gently pry the PCB from the double stick tape holding the PCB.
    • Remove the four PH00 screws holding the PCB in place. Then use the Spudger Tool to gently pry the PCB from the double stick tape holding the PCB.

  13. Remove the two screws on either side of the power connector located on the top back of the ring camera enclosure using the PH2 tool. Then using the Spudger Tool, pop of the rubber covers on either side of the power connector cover in the back, and pry off the power connector cover.  This will reveal two PH00 screws that hold the external power interface to ring camera enclosure. Remove the two PH00 screws on either side of the external power connector.  Then gently using the Spudger Tool pry the external power connector from the ring camera enclosure.

    • Remove the two PH00 screws on either side of the external power connector. Then gently using the Spudger Tool pry the external power connector from the ring camera enclosure.

  14. Use the Opening Pick Tool to remove the face from around the ring camera.  Insert the Opening Pick Tool between the camera face and ring camera enclosure, and work the Opening Pick Tool around the edges to release the retention clips of the camera faceplate.  The Spudger Tool can also be used to pry off the camera faceplate. Remove the four PH00 screws located around the camera face.  Once the four PH00 screws have been removed.  Use the Spudger Tool to push the camera body loose from the ring camera enclosure.  Then remove the camera body from the ring camera enclosure. This will remove the internal metal assembly that hold the camera, and PCBs.
