Philips Norelco beard trimmer disassembly and battery replacement

My trusty (yet old) beard trimmer has needed to be plugged in to use for a long while now, but the batteries finally degraded so much (I suspect they were a direct short) that even plugging it into its charger failed to make it work. So, I took it apart and replaced the batteries. (They needed it, I believe they were from 2001.)

This video distills what I learned (the hard way) about the proper order of operations for disassembling this model to get to the battery to replace it.
This trimmer is from the 2001-2002 era, and I couldn’t find any model number markings on it, or photos that looked like it on the internet, so if you can identify the specific model number, please shout out in the comments…
