    2. They both mean to take apart. However there is a subtle difference in that dismantle is used more for taking apart things without knowing how and disassemble is used more when you know how to take the thing apart. You can dismantle something without exactly knowing how to dismantle it, or without knowing the instructions or steps on how to. When you disassemble it you usually know how to take it apart because you assembled it, or put it together. You can assemble (put together), disassemble (take apart) and reassemble (put back together). But you can only dismantle, there is no such thing as mantling or to remantle.
