Dissassembling my Bebook

Hi Guys,
I manages to get my Bebook very wet and not notice for about a week. In order to dry it out, I wanted to open it up.

I case anyone else that has a Hanlin V3 or clone, does something similar I thought I would put up some notes on how to get into one so you don't end up breaking some of the internal brackets like I did.
  1. Remove the battery
  2. leaver off the little rubber feet on the back - three of the four cover the main screws
  3. unscrew all the screws
  4. carefully leaver the front and back apart.

I am sure this will void the warranty but if like me you have damaged it in a way that voids it anyway or have soaked it and want to dry it out as completely as possible, or are too impatient to send it in for repair, you may find the notes useful.

My Bebook is now in the postal system for the Netherlands (from Australia) and probably stuck in Asia, waiting for the airports in Europe to reopen.

Here is an image for the V5 (mini). The V3 comes apart the same way.
