Disassembling The Brain Teaser

This is part 3. After the fold, I show how to finish disassembling the puzzle.

Slide the special piece up revealing a gap:

 Now there is room to slide the piece below it up and out:

Until the piece is completely removed:

Now remove the corresponding piece on the opposite side the same way.  From here, its easy to remove one more piece, and then the puzzle almost falls apart. This is where I got to on Christmas morning in a few minutes, and then impulsively finished disassembling the puzzle without studying further. If you're no further ahead in figuring out the puzzle, I suggest you do the same.
