neversummer224 teaches you how to take apart an XBox 360 Elite without any special tools. This will void your warranty, so be careful once you start this process. You need a TORX 10 screwdriver, which is also called a star bit, and a very small flathead screwdriver. First off, remove the hard drive on top. Take off the faceplate by pulling on it. You can know also remove the top piece of plastic. Use your small screwdriver on the side and back of the XBox 360 to remove the side of the console. Using the large screwdriver you will get the screws out on the aluminum side and then safely remove the other side of the console. Now you're done taking the covers off from an XBox 360 Elite.
