Disassembling the unit is quite easy, actually it's probably the easiest disassemble I've done recently.
Note: You only need to disassemble the unit if you want to do a custom antenna modiciation or forgot to set the boot_wait parameter in the NVRAM. If you've already set boot_wait, you only need to flash it via tftp (recommended) or the web-based administration.
First thing to do is to remove the antennas, just unscrew them from the connectors.
Next, flip the unit up-side-down and hold a hand on each of the feet on the same side while pushing them apart. The front cover should easily pop open.
Remove the other back cover by pressing slightly backwards and up.
Now the unit is dissambled and you can access the top of the circuit board. But if you want to access the bottom you only need to remove one screw in the center next between the WAN and the LAN ports. Infact that's the only screw in the entire unit.
