Yes, it's easier to use the pry tool to remove the rails. They have clips on the bottom, but use double-sided tape at the top. You can get a Torx set with multiple tips from Home Depot for under $10. IT has the smaller T4 or 5 size needed for the 8830.
BTW - I bought and installed my black and very readable keyboard from CN.
