    • Unscrew all eight 12mm Phillips head screws with a Philips #1 screwdriver.

    • The iFixit 26 bit screwdriver kit will not reach the screws. Make sure to use a screwdriver that is thin enough to not get stuck in the screw holes.

    • Flip the Luna back over so that the buttons are facing upward and the LCD screen is facing you.

    • Gently tilt the lid back 45 degrees so that the inside is exposed.

    • Be mindful of the wires inside of the Luna. It is easy to break a connection if a wire gets caught.

    • Unscrew the three 7 mm black screws using the Philips #1 screwdriver on the back end of the left and right circuit board.

    • Removing the right circuit board first will make it easier to unscrew the left because the heat-sinks on the left circuit board can get in the way of the screwdriver.

    • Use a plastic opening tool to pry the black connections away from the top casing.

    • Be attentive when you separate the circuit boards from the top, as there is a loose wheel inside.

    I dont know why you would pull the rotary encoder apart when you can just push the silver button knob off the top of the radio by pushing it from below and then unscrew the rotary encoder from the lid afterwards. Much simpler and nothing gets damaged.

    • Turn the circuit boards over. Remove the two connections on the left side by pulling on the tabs.

    • The glue that holds the connection together will come off when you pull. Pull on the tab with enough force to break the glue without damaging the wires.
