Insert the edge in the "crack" between the halves and twist.
Kinda like opening a can of paint. Just have to be a little
more careful while twisting.

The correct sound is "snip", if it goes "foink", you're
probably opening a can of paint <g>

Contura Aero 4/33 with WfW 3.11. No peguins or daemons in
this one.

[C] From: (Heiko Purnhagen)
Whilst taking my aero apart, I also managed to disassemble the (B/W) display:
After having removed the upper half of the aero, unplug the display cable
from the mainboard and remove the lower of the two screws in the back of
your aero that kept the display in place. Now you can take of the whole
display. To disassemble it, you have to remove the two small round plastic
plates in the lower left and right corner of the display to gain access to the
screws covered by them. Remove these screws and than CAREFULLY unsnapp the
upper half of the display casing (the one arround the screen). If I
remeber it correctly, there are three of these "snapp-in" things on the
lower edge, three on the left and right edges and about four on the
upper edge of the display. Again, you really have to be very careful when
doing this! The display itself is a single unit with a metal chassis - and
below it there is a small PCB containing the circuit to power the backlight.
