    • Turn the Jambox upside down. Peel the indicated rubber tabs off, using a plastic opening tool if necessary.

    • You may want to only take the tabs half way off to avoid re-gluing when reassembling.

    • Use a screwdriver to remove the three T6, 7.0 mm screws under each rubber tab.

    • Because the screws are a different length, set the screws aside.

    • With the Jawbone logo facing towards you and with correct orientation, place the Jambox with the left end cap facing upward.

    • Unscrew indicated T6 9.7 mm screws.

    • Flip the Jambox so the other end cap is facing up. The USB cable is on this side (metal grounding clip, indicated in orange). Repeat the above step.

    • Pry up the bottom panel by lifting from the device.

    • Pull the bottom up. This may take a bit of force as the bottom is glued to device.

    • Once removed, the battery will now be visible.

    No glue on mine. Only two clips on each side (that you can see clearly in step 3 picture).

    Do not use force or you will break those clips.

    • Before unscrewing, take a picture of the top view. That way, when you're reassembling the device, you'll know the orientation of the metal grounding plates.

    • Unscrew the eight indicated T6 9.8 mm screws. Remove metal grounding plates.

    • Once all eight screws are removed, pry the sides of the Jambox to lift the body from it's shell.
