Apple Magic Trackpad teardown

Bottom panel tabs

Looking at the internal side of the Trackpad's bottom panel, we can see the four tabs and two circular rubber feet. Unfortunately, I broke two of the tabs when removing the panel.

As the panel is primarily help on with adhesive, it might actually have been better to pry the panel loose from the other end. Pulling it free from the frame and then sliding the tabs out of their corresponding slots.
