The best way to get at this is by taking the plastics apart. You want to get to a point that you can see the back of the battery so you can push it out instead of prying it. Start by removing the keyboard, then the top plastic that hold the touch pad and surrounds the keyboard. At this point you should be able to see the back side of the battery pretty well, make sure nothing has fallen into the battery bay that has made the battery kick off to one side. You should be able o work it out from there.

Doors locked how to unlock no keys

It's actually pretty easy and can be done in about 20 seconds for experienced people. They probably used an inflatable wedge to pry the side of your door open then used a long rod to unlock the door by either hitting the unlock button or by moving the lock selector switch at the handle. I hope they didn't take anything too valuable. Scott

take the back of the phone off, the battery is nearly impossible to pry out til you get practice but use the rounded corner of the metal back that you took off and put it in the little space on the top of the battery and wedge it in and pry up. keep trying, it will get easier lol

1996 Toyota Camry LE. Took it to the shop to have the CV joints replaced, both of them. Mechanics are unable to get either side axles out of the transmission. They have tried using heat, impact hammer,...

There is a small "circlip"holding the axle in place. Place a pry bar between the cv joint and the transmission and pry the axle out with a sharp snapping movement. This should pop the axle loose from the "circlip". The steering wheel can be turned to gain more working room. Tell those guys to lay off the heat. Hopefully no damage was done and they will be able to get the new axles in without too much trouble. Merry Christmas.

Existing vessel sink is stuck to polished granite vanity top. We want to replace the sink with a different one but can't get the sink to release--we originally used silicone adhesive and have tried wedging...

Silicone is an excellent adhesive once it is fully cured. I would not try to pry it off but I would suggest that you take the blade out of drywall or utility knife and carefully try to cut through it. It probably will take several cuts to get the old basin free but thats the only way I can think of to do it without damage to counter top. Hope that helps. Thanks

Same problem with the pump-how do you get it off???

If you are careful you can but be careful while doing it as you can injure yourself or cause further damage to the machine. Can you get the pump cover off as I have found very often that a baby sock or wash cloth has wedged itself in the pump causing it not to work properly. After removing the plug and putting back together it has worked fine.
