How to Open Your Xbox
Be care in opening your Xbox that you do not crack the cover . You shouldn't struggle with opening your Xbox. With the way it is designed it will pop apart when done correctly, you shouldn't pry or you will be very unhappy with the results
First remove the faceplate. Don't skip this step and go on to removing the top and bottom plates you will see they can be taken off but you will increase the difficulty and chances of tearing off the little tabs off the top and bottom plates. The simplest way to remove the face is to use the finger hole at the bottom of the console and pull forward.
Beginning with the gray bottom vent plate, six tabs that keep it into place. You will see that all of them are easy to access from the sides through the vent holes. Slightly pull up on the plate and at the same time release the clips by pushing in with the opening tool or other tool that fits through the hole.
Begin at the front of the case and start to work your way back changing sides so each pair of tabs are released. Keep slight pressure to pull it up and away while you go.
The top plate is a little bit more difficult. 3 of the six tabs are not visible, start with the front two, they can be reached from the two corresponding holes where the drive tray touches.
The opening tool has a cut out so it fits just right to reach the two clips. The next two are can be seen through the vent holes and easily are easy to reach. The last tab can be released by removing one of the Xbox feet at the rear to reveal a hole.
With the top and bottom vent covers taken off it's time to lay the xbox down upside down.
This makes the whole thing much simpler as the chassis is screwed to the top. With the bottom shell,pointing toward the sky you will see these 7 little holes.
Spread the case apart and push in on the vent area, there are a few more spots where the case connects but these are not clips and you don't need the tool. When you press in nothing much will happen but you will see that the case spreads a little further apart.
