How to Open Case of DAT 72 USB External Drive

I have a DW027A external DAT 72 USB drive. It has an extremely noisy fan that needs to be replaced. Does any know how to open the plastic case for this unit so I can get at the internal parts?

I am also looking for information regarding opening the case parts. I would like to clean the head with Lint fr
ee tissue and isopropyl alcohol.

I don't have a DAT72 USB drive but from the picture I see that there are some rubber feet under the tape. Try to remove those and probably you will find some screws.

If there are no screws this means it should crack in two pieces but you have to be careful not to break the plastic case.

I hope this helps!
