Default Dismantling Garrett Pro Pointer?

Greetings, my replacement Carrot had failed in the same manner as the original one. Both previous unit failed in the same manner after only 8 or so hours of usage. Both ended up stuck in one mode, not being able to switch modes at all, or turn it off without pulling the battery out. (neither unit were dropped, banged, pried with, hammered or abused in any way...)

But the one thing very similar is a rattling noise from inside the unit. Sound like a small plastic piece rattling around inside. I would very much like to pull the insides out of the orange casing to see exactly what it is that is rattling around and hopefully discover that it's a quick fix in case this should happen again.

Has anyone ever taken one of these apart? I don't want to risk damaging it more than it is now by trying something ill advised.

And yes, I have contact Garrett and still waiting for a reply..
