    You have to give it a serious downwards pull from both sides.

    It is held on with 6 ( i think ) plastic clips that you have to disengage.

    When I first did this I thought -'no way' but it does pull off. Start with the top ( nearest rear screen ) on either side and then transfer to the other side. It really needs a damn good 'yank'.

    It will come off, believe me and when you put it back make sure that the plastic clips are correctly positioned before you snap it back. Otherwise you could break the clip.

    Good luck. :thumbsup:
