    • Turn the device upside down to reveal the rubber section of the back plate. Using a metal spudger, carefully wedge the blunt tip into the space between the aluminum back plate and the rubber, separating the two pieces.

    • This may take a few minutes to pry the rubber off completely. Once your are able to get a grip on the rubber it is easier to peel it off using your hands.

    • Depending on air temperature and how set the adhesive is, you may need to spend some time warming the back plate with a hot plate (on low) or hair dryer.

    • Don't worry about re-applying adhesive to the rubber; the remaining adhesive has plenty of strength to affix itself to the aluminum.

I had to open to destroy the hard drive for security reasons. The rubber bottom was so old it just tore to bits. I used a Dremel Multi-Max with a flat scraper blade to remove it in the end.

must I put back on the rubber bottom or can I leave it off for maximum airflow?
