I want to paint my apple remote to match my black macbook. Does anyone have a disassembly guide so i can take this thing apart. I got the battery out and removed the screw inside the battery slot. I can see 2 prongs but they dont appear to be holding it together. Any help is GREATLY appreciated.
It may be a sealed unit. In that case, taking it apart would be a less than stellar option, much like the pro mice and mighty mice. The easiest thing to do would be to mask off the transparent black fronting, sand the whole thing lightly, and then spray it with a half dozen coats of matte black. then re-sand it smooth, and hit it with a matte clear. One more sanding, and you're probably home free.
Electricity tastes good. No, seriously.
You can pull the battery tray out. I think thats about it. There is a screw visible when you remove the tray, but undoing it doesn't accomplish much. It looks like you might be able to pull out the guts with a very fine pair of pliers (bit like an iPod mini), but I couldn't get mine out easily. The outer case is definitely glued down the seams at the edges.
