Good lord, I am going to find a world of sh!t in there, aren't I?
Step 1) With the lid closed, take some hefty nails or some 12 gauge wire or coat hanger wire and locate the holes in the sides of the lid hinges that stop the hinges from opening once the lid is disconnected from the hinges. This way they won't spring open on you once you remove the lid.
Step 2) Take a socket driver and remove the bolts holding the lid to the hinges.
The next steps require you to have a video camera with audio running, preferably on a tripod
for our amusement. And you really should do this outside on a deck or a backyard or a garage or something.
Step 3) Lift up the ends of the rubber seal to locate the plastic plugs that hold the inside lid liner to the lid and remove the plugs with a putty knife and pliers.
Step 4) Put on some gloves to protect yourself from the nastiness waiting for you.
Step 5) Remove the rubber seal and lid liner to expose the insulation. Try not to yell too loud.
