I figured out how to get mine apart, and posted a quick video about it.

The tricky part is getting the front face off. You have to lift the part by the screws then pull it like in the video, wont be as easy as it looks. I got mine off without knowing but bent the face a little. Not that I care at this point, I pretty sure mine is dead.
