    Here it is looking the other direction......wait for it...downloading ........from my phone.

    The cover plate (gray) 5 screws ummm maybe four covers it up.

    Unlatch the fpc for the smartcard reader....carefully! It's soldered to the mobo. The brown tabs come straight up a mill or so.

    PARTIAL DISASSEMBLY OF FZ-Q1 TO CHANGE BATTERY OR WHATEVER:

    UNPLUG POWER CABLE.

    REMOVE FOUR BLACK SCREWS IN THE CORNERS.

    REMOVE ONE SCREW INSIDE THE SMART-CARD DOOR.
    (DID YOU KNOW SIM CARDS ARE CONSIDERED TO BE SMART-CARDS?) IN THIS CASE WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THE FULL SIZE SMART-CARD.

    TIP IT INTO YOUR LAP AND REMOVE TWO BOTTOM SILVER SCREWS.

    DISREGARD THE TWO SCREWS HOLDING THE DOCKING ASSEMBLY FOR NOW.

    WITH A PLASTIC TOOL (FRUIT PEELER/CELL PHONE TOOL) START WORKING AROUND THE EDGE SEPARATING THE CLAM SHELL. I FOUND STARTING ON THE SIDE OPPOSITE THE DOCK CONNECTOR TO BE EASIEST.

    TO NOT LOSE WHAT YOU GAIN HERE A FOLDED CLOTH OR PAPER TOWEL WORKS TO KEEP THE CRACK FROM SNAPPING SHUT AGAIN. CORNERS ARE THE WORST...BUT NOT TOO BAD JUST GO SLOW AND GET DONE QUICKER.

    THE SMART-CARD DOOR AND POSSIBLY THE USB DOOR WILL FALL OUT DURING THIS PROCESS.

    FINALLY IT WILL GIVE UP AND YOU CAN PICK UP THE DOOR THAT FELL ON THE FLOOR.

    NOW YOU CAN PULL THE VERY UNUSUAL BATTERY...IN MY CASE IT STUCK A LITTLE BUT IT WAS JUST THE CORNER OF THE SPEAKER MODULE WEDGING IT IN A BIT.

    RE-ASSEMBLY:
    PUT THE DOORS WHERE THEY GO BUT HOLD OFF ON ON THE SMART-CARD DOOR UNTIL THE LID IS NEARLY TOGETHER. THE RUBBER HINGES ARE HELD IN PLACE BY THE SMART-CARD BOX.

    I STARTED AT THE BOTTOM AND LINED UP THE TWO TABS THAT THE SILVER SCREWS GO THROUGH. THEN PRESSING IT DOWN, IT CLICKED INTO PLACE WITH A SHORT PAUSE TO LINE UP OUR FAVORITE SMART-CARD DOOR. THEN CLICK, CLICK, CLICK AND DONE!

    RE-INSTALL SEVEN SCREWS TO COMPLETE THE PROJECT. NOTE: THE SMART-CARD DOOR SCREW WAS MISSING ON MY UNIT...IT'S A DIFFERENT SIZE THAN THE CORNER SCREWS. THE ORIGINAL MAY HAVE BEEN SILVER....I USED A BLACK ONE FROM MY STASH.

    ENJOY.

    Guitar picks are a great tool to prevent losing progress.
