Horizon 2 27" AIO - Removing The Rear Cover

I've read other posts and there isn't much in the way of detailed videos so I have a couple questions regarding removing the rear cover of the Horizon 2 (the slim model) 27" AIO.

 

First, I can push into the recess and get the screen to pop out enough to get something in between but I'm not sure what holds the screen to the case?  Are there snaps in there that I'm releasing as I move along, separating the screen from the cover, or is there some sort of adhesive tape or what, exactly holds the screen to the case that I am undoing?

 

Second, there are two areas to insert a screwdriver.  Do I need to use both, or just start with one and work my way around?  Do I need to go all the way around the unit to release the screen or does it release after just doing the one side?

 

If anyone has done this, let me know and any other helpful tidbits.  I'm looking to replace the HDD with a SSD. 

 

Thanks.

Thanks.  I had looked at some Lenovo videos, but they were short and not as detailed as these.  

 

I was successful in opening the case and have also successfully replaced the HDD with an SDD (Intel 525 500GB).
