Ok I am trying to paint my XBOX. I just need help removing the front part. I read the pinned and searched but still no luck. Do i just push hard as hell on the sides? And itll pop off?

yeah you gotta be pretty forcefull i find, it may seem like your gonna break it, just unclip each side, then lift the tabs on the inside of the case and snap it out kinda lol

In basic terms, yes. But i reccomend using a flathead screwdriver to pry off the front. Be carefull when prying, you dont want to crack the front panel like i did jester.gif Also if you want to paint the DVD benzel (the thing that says "xbox") just give it a good tug and it comes off, no tools required.

i used the coolest tool for mine, i used the handle from my grill, it had a big metal sticky out bit that fitted along the side of the panel perfect, and the handle gave some great leverage

Check that baby for leverage!

thats good to hear, did you prep the xbox for painting in any way, and if you did use sandpaper, how much did you sand it down? thanks and good luck

well seeing as the grill handle isnt sharp, and doesnt fire bullets, it wasnt really at all thought of in that way. it is thick and levers it great lol
