    The back cover of the Huawei P9 Lite is clipped in all around the display unit.

    1. Attach the suction cup relatively far down. Then pull on the suction cup to lift the back cover.
    2. Then insert the pick between display unit and backcover and pry them apart.
    3. Release the back cover clip for clip around the entire device. If it doesn't work the first time, you can use a second pick or pull it a little harder with your fingers.
    4. The back cover is glued to the fingerprint sensor. You can use a heat gun to slightly heat the back cover and soften the glue.
    5. Once all the clips are released, you can remove the back cover.
