I took those out and promptly put them back again as they got me nowhere.

No, the black plastic cover to the transport has 4 screws You've marked
one and identified its opposite number. There is a 3rd screw down a hole
(top rhs of the cover, as shown), and the 4th retains the cover over the
stepper mechanism  - the slim rectangular box protuberance that your LH
sketched blue line crosses. Essentially, there is a screw in each of the 4
corners of the transport cover.

Sorry I didn't photograph what I did, but it was ad hoc impatience at
1.30am after I got fed up with flary scans.

I did neither, just ejected the film carrier, turned the scanner off and
took the lid off.
