Carefully, but forcefully with a flat knife is how I did mine. Then superglue it back together afterwards.

Yes, I used a sharp knife and a fair amount of force on my WH1081 tx units. But rather than gluing them back together I just used an elastic band so I could take them apart again if I wanted.

Sorry, no banner - weather station out of action. Hoping to be up and running with a new home-made one soon.
