Opening the main can is fairly easy. It's designed to allow this
to be done. You need a small flat screwdriver (~2mm blade) and
then carefully lift the shield on or near the corners opposite
the BT module, in an area where you're not touching any electronic

If you end up pushing against a small component, you'll shear
it off the board, possibly causing mechanical damage to component
and board, so it's better to resist the temptation of going for
some extra lever effect.

Repeat this along that edge and the sides until the shield moves
freely. You can then rotate it on its back.

The fun part is soldering things inside the can :-) But I
assume you're already familiar with soldering SMT.
