Beginning at the sides of the device, use a plastic opening tool to separate the front and rear cases. Continue working your way around the device gently prying it open. There are still wires holding the front and rear cases together. You may damage the connections if you yank the cases completely apart.

Any idea what type of pcb header is on the board for the battery? I have a motherboard with a broken header but I cant source a replacement

Release the left shoulder button flex cable socket by using a spudger to pry open the tab. Be careful to not break off this small black tab! Using tweezers, slide the flex cable out of the socket. Do not pull on the black tab! Instead, pull the thin flex cable away from the connector (to the left in this image).
