How to open rc71 remote to clean buttons?

lynchbout

I need to open the cover & get to the buttons to clean orange juice that was spilled on buttons & now they stick.  I am able to get battery cover & the screw out.  I have opened the laser or rf or whatever area in the front off.   But I cannot figure out how to separate the other 3 sections of plastic.   Any ideas???

    Best just to get a new off eBay

      yes, why didn't I think of that.  The remote is about 2 months old, lets just dispose of it, add it to the landfill, and buy another one, because that's the way things are done now.  Heaven forbid anyone should want to CLEAN something.   Easier still I can just order one here at DirecTV.   Or they can make it so I can open it and clean it without needing a degree in plastic engineering.
