    • Before you begin, be sure to turn off your laptop and unplug it from the outlet.

    • Use a Torx T5 driver to unscrew the eight screws securing the back panel.

    • Use a spudger to pry up and loosen the back panel.

    • Lift the back panel up slightly from the non-hinged edge.

    • Pull the back panel away from the hinged edge, wiggling it back and forth to loosen the clips.

    • When the back panel clips are free, remove the back panel.

    You should be careful when removing the back panel as there also two clips on its back where the air ducts lie. If you are quick to remove it you may tear the air ducts which are quite (unreasonably) fragile given the fact they are plastic. I was unfortunate and I broke two of them so I had to use some duct tape as a minor gap would be visible between the back panel and the plastically covered air ducts. Other than that, it’s a pain to remove the back panel but not as difficult as it sounds.

The torx bit used is a T5, the screw is an m2x3 — if you’re buying a kit you want the T5 torx bit
