How to open / shuck a WD My Book (New) without breaking the case

I’ve noticed that brute force is used in most of the videos on Youtube which show how to shuck the hard drive of a WD My Book. This isn’t necessary if you know where to apply pressure on the case. I’ve made a short video myself showing how to open the case without scratching it or breaking the tabs.

  1. this helped with figuring out where to start. but it did not open up as nicely as that one on the video. after inserting the bits that bend it open a bit i had to push the cooling hole thing with some force to make it snap open
