    • Remove the battery from the rear inner frame.

    • Use the flat end of a spudger to pry up the red MicroSD retainer attached to the inner frame.

    • Use a pair of tweezers to carefully pull the MicroSD card out of its slot in the inner rear frame.

    • Remove six T5 Torx screws securing the rear inner frame to the inner case.
