Use 1-2 plastic opening tools or nylon spudgers to firmly pry open the back panel. We recommend that you start prying the panel where the scuff guard was removed. Prying the back panel will cause loud popping noises. This is just the sound of the clips that hold the back panel to the PC popping off.
