In order to remove the rubber plugs hiding the 4 screws, I found that a straight pin angled into the top of the plug can be used to lift them easily straight out and the plug is unharmed.

With the screws out, the back did not budge. I used the thinest blade screw driver in my jeweler's set to pry the case open and pushed on the plastic catches, one on each side that were holding it closed. They are visible in the photo of the back off.
