just for resizing. I only suggested nothing more I like to keep on page , rather scroll

I only say a nail, the proper tool is a micro screwdriver Place it exactly in there

and you see exactly at the 3 oclock , and looking at the side of the 1st pic that is a tab it will release. you're almost there budd. ALMOST

So place yourfingers and squeeze in it will release and pop off, but remember
its your camera, I had no trouble but I taken my time.

Dam I am not on my pc I have to dig that porch video I pop off the go LOL

.after it is off you'll Laugh trust me.

sorry, I don't understand. now you say at 3 oclock? do I have to insert the nail at 3 oclock? do you mean in the slot located at 3 oclock?
(there are 6 slots as you can see in my last photo, I included when I edited my last post)
But before, you said I had to insert at 6 oclock. And from below.
And do I have to insert a nail, head first? Or tip first?
May I do it using a small screwdriver? with flat tip?

Another view of 6 oclock As you can see there is no hole to enter perpendicularly
to the face. Because the flash shield (transparent plastic) goes upwards into the lens cover. You can insert a needle at at 6 oclock but going upwards, following the transparent plastic into the lens cover. But the slot is very very thin. Not even a needle's head can enter.

I no longer own the cam.

I no longer have the vid online, of the removal of the lens cover.

to take off the cover:

Place a Micro screwdriver from 1/8-9/64th on the Purplelish area, with your fingers you can press on the sides, shown yellowish, and press these tabs hold in place the cover.

I am sorry if I am not clearer then that.

most the pics you spullpied are of the wrong angles andmake it difficult to explain, not upset, just takes a lil force.

I shown on the MPVr video of the breakdown

sorry man, but I understand less and less each time. I must be an idiot.
I don't understand your graphic either. Could you make the graphic over one of the photos?
Can I shoot another photo, from a different angle?

wow! I just watched the video!! thank you dude, that was too much!!
I am going to try what you did, its just basically to use the screwdriver as a lever.
Is it a simple leverage, increasing the force until it pops, or do I have to do some pushing inwards, and/or twisting? Its not clear on the video.
I have tried it now, quite strongly, and it doesn't come out. The plastic is going to be broken before it comes out.
I think my camera doesn't have the same design. I don't think there are 2 tabs in the same places as in your camera. (10 o clock and 4 oclock) because it looks quite loose at these positions. It looks it is anchored only at 6 oclock.

ps: yes, I saw the second part of your video. You used a mini-hook to get it out.

OK. I finally did it.
As I suspected, the design is not the same as in your video. There are 2 tabs (arrow shaped), but are located at 5oclock and 7oclock. This different placement probably explains why levering at 6oclock was unsuccessful. Thankfully, I didn't apply brute force, because I would have probably caused much damage.
This is how I did it: I used the slots at 5 and 7 oclock, to access the tabs, and with a little screwdriver, I released the corresponding tabs. First, one, then the other. It wasn't easy at all. I had to pull the lens cover outwards as I used the screwdriver leveraging to release the tabs. I had to apply the screwdriver at the upper points of the tabs (towards 4 oclock and 8 oclock). This made them to release faster.

ok, I am too tired. Maybe tomorrow I will proceed forward.

I am sure it makes no difference I said therewill be two tabs a certain areas, and a hole at 6 oclock.

I use whatis called a Spunger the n is silent so its Spuh ger

as you seen in the video part two, it was that simple

I was goingto show in the GVS that has four clips how simple it was but it did no tbudge for me lol

it is said the first time is the hardest......

and that is exactly what has happened
LOOK, LOKK, LOOK, b4 you Tear, Tear, TEar, and you'll find a resolution
congrads,
