    • Flip the Apple TV over so that the bottom of the unit is facing up.

    • You need to remove the rubber base to get access to the screws.

    • Starting at one side of the device, use a hairdryer or a heat gun to soften the adhesive holding the rubber base in place.

    • The rubber base will be hot after heating, take extreme caution while proceeding to avoid personal injury.

    • While the adhesive is still warm, peel the bottom of the rubber base upwards to detach it from the metal plate.

    • The rubber base can tear if the adhesive hasn't been softened enough.

    • Repeat the procedure described above until the rubber base has been completely removed.

This guide may make more sense as a teardown, since its not really showing any repairs or replacements.
