  1. Locate the screws under the triangular arrows on the bottom of the unit. These screws are typically hidden behind small plastic covers.
  2. Use a screwdriver to remove the plastic covers, exposing the screws underneath.
  3. Carefully remove the screws using the appropriate screwdriver, taking note of their positions for later reassembly.

Unclipping the Cover

  1. Gently pull the plastic cover off from the bottom of the unit. There are clips on the top of the unit that secure the cover in place.
  2. If you pull the bottom of the cover out first, the cover will pop out of the top clips, allowing you to remove it completely.

Releasing the Top Clips

  1. Identify the areas where the top clips are located. These are typically indicated by small arrows or markings on the unit.
  2. Apply gentle upward pressure on the areas where the arrows are pointing while simultaneously pulling the bottom of the unit outwards.
  3. This action will release the top clips, allowing you to fully remove the cover.

Removing the Cover

  1. Once the cover is unclipped and the top clips are released, you can safely remove the cover from the unit.
  2. Carefully set the cover aside, ensuring that you do not damage any of the internal components or the wiring.

Reassembling the Cover

To reassemble the cover, simply reverse the steps you followed for removal. Ensure that the cover is properly aligned and that all the clips and screws are securely in place.
