In essence, the key to removing the keyboard is to remove that strip across the top. Just make sure there are no screws holding it in place. Just prying at it will certainly break something if its screwed down. Sometimes having the LCD screen folded all the way back can allow some extra  room when trying to get this strip off.
As for the diagram I posted for you, if you scroll down to H-1 Hood Keyboard assembly, this will show you whats in there.

This link is about as close to a breakdown for this laptop as I have ever seen on a Sony. You will have to decipher the parts and screw locations to find out how to remove the keyboard.

Most likely the bottom, there may be a screw or 2 that holds the top plate in place where the speakers are.

hey bochaka,

I found a bit better link detailing how to install memory for your model, and it walks you through removing the keyboard with easy to follow pictures and step by step instructions...

sorry I believe that was for a different model.

You know the best way to do this yourself is to go to viao-link.com and go to the e-Support, talk to a tech that can walk you through doing what you need.

under the "Other" category, click "e-Support" then you'll either have to login or register. Follow the steps there to get on connect with a tech and they'll be able to direct you in what you need to do.

Commonly the notebooks have clips or a piece of plastic towards the top of the keyboard which you need to unclip, but you have to be careful not to bust one of these clips. Once you remove that piece covering the screws for the keyboard, it's fairly simple from there, however it'd be best to chat or speak to someone from sony so you don't break something trying to remove the keyboard.
