Generally good directions supplied by chriswest, but I'd like to clarify a little.
*) Use your thumb and pull on the bottom end cord socket part, enough to cause a gap between it and the back shell. Insert a thin metal nail file or other thin pointed object with smooth edges into the gap in the center of the part. THEN pry it off. If you use a regular screw driver, you will likely cause gouges in the plastic. And the best leverage is in the center.
*) When reassembling, the bottom cord socket part is tricky to get put into place. Pushing straight down on this part will not get it to go in, nor any other obvious way--very frustrating. I've found that it's best to get the prongs inserted on one side, then while pushing in on the prongs of the opposite side, apply pressure on the top side surfaces. The part should snap right back into place.
*) Don't worry about keeping track of which sides the silver trim pieces go on, as they're designed to fit on only one side (you'll see the cutout for the shaver head stem is off to one side).
*) Be careful of the pressure clips on the sides of the unit once the silver trim is removed. They're very peculiar in that they bend very easily out of shape and can't be bent back to the way they were without taking them off (which is an annoyance).
