Default Opening an 8700r - How to?

Please Login to Remove!

So it looks like I have dust behind the screen of 8700r, great, I know! I noticed some have mentioned they've opened their 8700's to blow the dust out with compressed air. Question is are they're any special instructions? I've removed the 3 screws behind the battery door with a T-6 screw driver, the bottom portion of the BB seems to separate but the seems like I'll crack something if I pull any harder on the upper around the screen. Suggestions?

there are 2 clips holding in the door. Both clips are located in the middle opening. You need to put something in the holes and push the clip to release the side.

Be careful, though. If the object is too big you will ding the plastic.
