Default Airport Express

Does anyone know how to physically open the case on these? I have a spare one kicking around and am wanting to snoop around inside it. I don't care if I have to mangle the case, which I partly have done already.

TIA!

Misread the "express" part, thought you meant the airport base station. Anyway, you might want to read this:

Especially this pic is informative, please use a Torx screwdriver:

I would always use Google first to check how a device is opened before damaging it with knives, screwdrivers and such. More clever approach of solving things

You might want to read all, these devices are known to have blown caps and insufficient cooling. Best is to solve the problems before they occur. The author describes various solutions, highly recommended !

Jean-Paul, thank you. I finally resorted to tearing small bits of plastic around the circumference of the device until the two halves separated. Took an hour of precious time. The case is glued at its seam.
