Plus: remove the screw that secures the on/off-button, then take out the USB ports.
Additional advice comes from Douglas Ray (update 20100221): Left from the screwdriver, on the shiny shielded top of the inner assembly of the M2452 you need to remove the heavy
adhesive translucent plastic baffle). In my case, I think it was not translucent but rather black, but my original operation was almost six years ago. Douglas writes:
“It has to come off (to get to the screws). It takes some work. It is useful to know beforehand:
* at which points strong leverage is okay (almost the whole distance);
* where it is not (at one end, where it is attached to the delicate folded green printed-conductor, and at the thin strand connecting around the power button);
* that it must be removed from the green conductor strip, and this may be best done last (because it can re-attach to bits as you free others).
At re-assembly, I'd suggest:
* a bit of tape or paper to guard the green conductor strip from the adhesive baffle.”
