Use this guide to remove the outer case of the Nintendo Wii U and gain access to the DVD drive.
Step 1 Console Outer Case

Three 5.1mm Phillips #000 screws
Two 6.1mm Tri-wing Y0 screws
One 13.2mm Tri-wing Y1 screw
Rotate the console 180 degrees so that the exhaust vents are facing you.

On the side opposite of the exhaust vents, slide the cover faceplate towards the back of the console and pull upwards to release it.
