Well, it's taken a few days, but I've finally been able to access the heat-sink and fan of the NUC, WITHOUT having broken or lost anything in the process.
Yesterday I bought a ToolPro Precision Screwdriver & Bit Set.I wasn't up to using it yesterday or this morning because on a case of the runs. The last thing I wanted to do was have to rush off to the toilet in middle of things, or try anything while I had the shakes. But this afternoon I was finally able to remove the various screws (after gently removing SSD and memory sticks) and there it is. The next step is to apply the contact fluid, but before I do that I need to read the manual, and the instructions that came with it.
This might sound like an overly cautious and time consuming process, but this NUC is the best PC I have, and I didn't want either: break stuff trying to repair it, strip the head of the retaining screws, or apply the fluid in the wrong place and/or amount like I used to when I attempted to make Airfix model as a child (in all their blobby glue glory)!!!
So once I'm ready, I'll do the next step. Might even take another night of pondering and caution.
