    • With the bottom of the Xbox facing you, pull the two bottom-rear corners of the plastic case away from each other.

    • As you pull the corners apart, slide the back panel towards the bottom of the device. This releases the back panel from the plastic case.

    • The back panel should now settle on top of the clips on the back of the plastic case.

    • The back panel is permanently attached to the aluminum chassis.

    • Do not attempt to fully remove the chassis from the plastic case with this technique. You may risk breaking your case.

    • Flip the device over.

    • Take care when flipping the chassis over because the fan is now loose.

    • Use your fingers to pull and disconnect the fan connector from its motherboard socket.

    • Take care not to pull on the wires when disconnecting the fan to prevent breaking the connector.

    • This connector may be difficult to remove. A good method to remove it is to shimmy the connector up and out of its socket with a spudger.

    • You may be able to remove this connector without removing the power supply with a pair of needle-nose pliers.

    If you are careful you can also remove the connector by lightly prying from the sides of the connector in equal proportions (left then right then left etc.) using a 2.5 flathead.
