    Open up PS3 - without removing warranty seal?

    Is there a way to open up the PS3 without removing the warranty seal?

    I am currently in a dispute with a well-known retailer who have returned my console claiming that there is lots of dust inside (after their 'Quality Team' opened it up), however, the warranty seal appears to be untampered with?!

    I believe that they are lying as I thought the warranty seal covers a rubber nub which covers a screw to allow you to remove the lid (and that this was the only way into the console).

    Am I correct?

    If a qualified retailer opens them up im pretty sure they put new ones on. But I have heard heating the sticker up with a hairdryer works, that way when you peel it off it doesnt say void.

    FYI I called Sony and they told me that they are the only ones who have the stickers (well apart from the people actually making them of course) and no third parties are allowed to put them back on.
