As above, I'm trying to replace my broken screen but need back access. How do I open it?

Those are both for the glass-backed model. Mine has a full aluminium shell with plastic ends. I was hoping it would be similar to the 6.1, where the screen connector is under the digitiser at the front, but it isn't. I need to get the inner frame out of the aluminium shell to access the rear / battery area but I can't find any guides or teardowns online for this model.

Yeah that video is still a "glass" back (I don't know if it is glass!) - but you can see the back panel being removed with a heat gun. You can't do that on my model - its a single solid piece of aluminium. I have removed the old broken screen and can see that the main 'carriage' for the inner part of the phone looks like it is press-fit into the AL shell - but I don't really want to try and lever it out without knowing what I'm doing.

I asked on the Nokia community...my problem being it's actually a 5.1! - and you can just lever the innards out (carefully of course!)
