You remove the shell in the same manner as the GS-4 tender. If you flip the tender over so you are looking at the underside, there will be a screw hole near the holes for a speaker. Remove that screw and use a flat head screwdriver as a wedge where the boxes on the bottom of the tender in the center on both sides and lift the sides of the tender shell away from there like you would use a big stick to move a boulder. Once the shell is loose from the two spots I just mentioned, lift the shell away from the frame by grabbing on to the back of the shell and rear tender truck and lifting up. There is a tab on the front of the frame that slots into the front of the shell. Once the tender shell is angled towards the front, slide the shell forward to release it from the tab on the front of the tender frame. Follow the steps in reverse order for re-assembly. Easy way to do it that I thought I would mention, disconnect the engine from the tender. Saves you from having to flip both over for this.
