Swing the outer aluminium case up and carefully slide it it towards the connector side of the motherboard until it comes off. Remove the LED module by undoing two screws with a number 0 Philips head screwdriver. Then carefully unplug it from the motherboard to make it easier to work on.

Reassemble is a simple reversal being sure to remember to reverse every step. [ … ] Enjoy!
[ ]To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.
