How to open the key fob?

Can anyone tell me the best way to open the key fob without breaking the plastic?

I did a search but the words key and fob are too short for the website to find threads.

I am replacing the black plastic shell with an American Flag one that I ordered from a vendor on the site.

Thanks in advance.

Tom, I'm not sure since I've never opened mine but you can use the word remote in the search to find topics on the key fob as well

I'm surprised the vendor didn't include instructions. Why not ask them?

Edited to say where did you get it from?

To open the key fob.. a sharp small screw driver or a pocket knife

When looking at the face of the fob, about an eighth of an inch from the hole that holds the key ring is a small slot to stick a pocket size screw driver in and pry the two halves apart.

Thanks everyone.

Yep I got it from the thread posted above.

No it didn't come with instructions except to "pop your fob apart, transfer the electronics and pop the new one together".
