has anyone taken their G300 apart?

mine got wet and is now vibrating constantly - want to disassemble and clean the PCB or in extremis remove the vibrating unit altogether.

First question I guess is what size star-drive screwdrivers do I need?

Would you take some pictures as you go and post them?

thanks to the folks on this thread I got the thing disassembled eventually.

this doohicky here is the vibrator:

here it is after I plinked it off the PCB

didn't seem to be anything I could do to stop it constantly vibrating so I ripped the wires off the PCB and reassembled. Unfortunately it appears the GSM circuitry is hosed (not sure if this is from the moisture, or my subsequent handiwork) so I can no longer connect to my mobile network leaving me with a rather small wi-fi only tablet. (also the lights behind the softkeys are constantly flickering, but this seems to be a cosmetic problem only)...
