The tri-wing needed to open your remote is also available in iFixit's driver kits.

You can try just unscrewing the case and removing the front cover and see if that helps. The front cover is just a filter that only passes infrared light (and keeps dust out). But if you damaged the sensor inside, then you'll need a new Wii remote. To unscrew the case, I believe you need a tri-wing screwdriver, which you can get at Ebay. If the sensor is damaged, you can sell the remote to a hacker who only needs it for the accelerometer.

The front of the wii remote had a cracked screen because my older sister or brother and me were playing just dance 1 2 3 or 4 she or he kept on hiting it out of my hand. XD is that your problem.
