Step one, crack open the sides starting from the botton.

Step two, reach up from the bottom/sides with a lever to pop the clips holding the top cover down. Clips visible at left and right sides here:

Once the top is popped, four screws can be removed to enable pulling off the sides.

Be careful, as the display should not be disconnected, as it may be part of the tamper detection circuitry.
