|50g - cracking the case open?|

Does anyone have experience opening the 50g case?
To answer the question of, "Why would you ever want to do that? Are you really trying to pull the plant up by the roots to see what makes it grow?":
I am very annoyed at my current 50g; every key press results in an audible rattle. I know this may seem petty, but the vibration with every keystroke is minor frustration that builds with time to a strong desire to hurl this fine calculator against the nearest wall. I have ensured all rubber feet contact evenly, tried the paper trick to keep the battery cover tight and ruled out the front panel and screen as the source; this is something internal.
HP hasn't responded to any of my emails. *Gasp* REALLY?
I am going to buy another regardless; I don't mind the additional cost to get one that doesn't rattle like it has loose paperclips in it.
But, before I do that, I thought I ought open this unit up and see if I can readily epoxy the culprit still. Thus: have any of you pried this calculator apart yet? An initial plan of attack would be welcomed advice.
My thanks regardless,
