How to do it?
To open the Side Door from a closed position:
  1. With the camera facing you the Side Door is on the left side
  2. At the bottom of the door there is a notch
  3. Pull down on the notch until you hear a click. You will notice the red marking under the notch
  4. You can then rotate the door opening up exposing the Battery, the SD card slot, and the USB charging port
To remove the Side Door from the camera:
  1. With the Side Door fully open, rotate the door towards the front of the camera
  2. This motion will pop the connectors free 
To reinstall and close the Side Door on the camera:
  1. With the Side Door in the fully open position, press the 2 clips onto the metal bar and press towards the metal bar and you should hear a light click
  2. Move the Side Door up and down to ensure it's properly seated
  3. Move the Side Door to the fully closed position and press toward the camera
  4. Move the notch towards the top of the camera. 
  5. You should hear a light click and notice that the red marking is not visible and that the door is flush with the camera 
  6. Give a press to the top corner of the camera near where the door clips onto the camera
