Struggling to open laptop

Sorry it seem odd question but i struggled. Just before Brexit I bought a linux laptop from this company in the Netherlands from the Zorin website, the laptop is a Clevo NH55RZ. I want to add a second SSD for storage, does anyone have the same machine and has managed to open up the case for upgrade? I took out the screws, but it was still sealed and I didn't want to force it.

To open a notebook computer, removing the screws alone is not enough. You will need a spudger set, or those guitar pick looking things, to careful pry at the edges, to pop the bottom cover off.

This is my Ifixit kit...

Its expensive of course, it doesn't have to be this one. But if your going to be working on notebooks, just having a set of screwdrivers is not enough. You need some spudger tools or the guitar pick things.

I had no problem buying my kit and supporting Ifixit though, cause they were going to every state in our country pushing hard for Right To Repair. So ya.

Your best bet is to look up a guide on how to disassemble. Plenty can be found on YouTube.

P.S: If you cannot find any videos for your laptop model, look up "Clevo NH55RZ laptops", and you might find the same model being manufactured, just under a different brand name (because Clevo primarily sells their schematics to other manufacturers, instead of manufacturing them themselves). Then, try looking up the YouTube video for that, instead. Internally, the models have little to no variation.
