    • First start by peeling off the outer rubbery covering on the bottom of the device.

    • CAUTION: This part is very fragile, so it is recommended that a blow dryer is used on the covering to heat it up. Simply blow dry the covering while slowly peeling it away, and the covering will not tear.

    By the time I needed to open my AirPort Extreme in mid-2019, the adhesive bond to the covering had weakened to the point that the covering readily peeled away cleanly without the application of heat. I just worked slowly and carefully.

    The covering had no residue of adhesive on it after removal, but there was a sheet of adhesive clinging to the plastic surface of the body of the unit. I had to poke holes in it to reach the screws, but that was no big deal and easily done.

    When finished, the rubbery covering adhered to the body of the unit again adequately without the use of additional adhesive or (as I had planned to use) double-sided tape.

    BTW I was not disassembling the unit to replace the battery, but rather to reset the device by bridging the contacts that a broken reset switch failed to connect. (The switch had become detached from the circuit board and was literally hanging by a thread when I opened the case and fell off altogether as I examined it.)

    Thanks for the clear disassembly instructions!

    When I performed this, the rubber had deteriorated(?) and tore quite easily, particularly around the model number label.

    • After removing the rubber covering, unscrew the five 4.9mm Phillips screws in the holes of the plastic casing.

    Use a #0 Phillips driver for these screws. Knowing they are 4.9mm is not necessary unless one needs to be replaced.

  4. The inner metal casing is latched inside the outer white plastic shell, so insert a pry tool underneath the metal casing and pry it apart from the shell. It should make a click when it comes apart. It should make a click when it comes apart.

    Remove the 3 connectors from the logic board to the antennas before removing the logic board from the metal surround.

    My unit, still A1354, had FOUR antennas. The logic board was labeled 820-2622-A copyright 2009.

I do have Airport Extreme A1521 6th Gen and when I connect it to 110/220v it won't turn on and light indicator doesn't flash. How do you think it could be bettary or something else such as problem with power supply. Could you tell where I could order such power supple?

Appreciate.
