Answer to: How do I open my Kindle fire HDX case to replace screenHi Alison, Watch the start of the teardown video as a reference. There is a strip of plastic on the back that needs to be removed as a first step. It is shiny and has holes in for the speakers. It is held in place by tabs on the ends and adhesive especially off from the center of the strip. Use a safe open pry tool, isesamo, or a spudger to release the tabs and start peeling the plastic strip away from the kindle body.
