Hi Salvador,

Many thanks for the guide. I already knew all the steps until the ‘secret’ release mechanism, which is why I came to this page.

So, it would be really handy for future viewers if you included a picture of the position and design of the release latch. It would have saved me from fumbling around for 15 minutes pressing an unrelated button, which is situated just behind the release latch.
