A friend asked me to repair the ac connector that snapped off on his Sonos AMP. I am USUALLY pretty adept at learning how to take something apart, but wow………..this thing is a beast. Looks like there were attempts made before me too. Easy fix, just need some assistance in how to get it open.

Thank you

The first step is often the hardest.

It’s not obvious, but there is a large black round sticker on the bottom.  Peel this sticker off and it will reveal some screws.  Once those are out, carefully pry the holey bottom from the sides of the case.  you should be able to remove it without cracking anything.  If you are careful when you remove the sticker, that can be reattached later.
