B&W PX Headphones - tear down to locate battery

Hello to anyone who has a PX headset and is suffering a dead battery like the pair I've been handed to try and repair. I realise B&W say "No" they can be repaired but that's the official response and no reason to not try myself. I'm an electronics tech so I despise throwing any power-dead appliances out before attempting a repair.

Has anyone done this? Any guidance on pulling the main ear piece apart would be super-welcome - pics attached.
They are a real challenge to pull apart and generally someone out there will have already tried this. Is there a way to get to the battery?

See the pics attached. I'm not sure if this plate/surround comes off or whether the top section prises off. If some of this is glued then I'm in trouble.

Any input welcome,
Cheers

Fellow PX owner here. Fabric and pleather coming away from the headband. B&W said “They can’t be repaired. Would you like 10% off a pair of PX7’s Instead?”
