    hey I did the same thing but there should be 2 solder points on the bottom of the board if I am not mistaken(on a version one ) but thats not the issue
    you just ahve to take the main board and check arround the outside it takes a bit of effort but it just pulls off make sure that you have pulled out all of the connecting ribbon cables the metel peice under the main board is the one that you wnat to take off
