|Opening a 100LX|

Just received an HP-100LC from Australia. Overall nice condition except several keys don't work: the vertical row of Esc, Tab, Q, A, and Z, and, oddly, the "Memo" key.
This should be a simple fix but I cannot figure out how to take the thing apart. Removing the four T6 screws under the rubber feet was easy, and this site:
...shows how to do it, but the description is unclear and the photos are small and taken from a poor angle. The "Slide the credit card until it's at the position shown below" photo is especially useless.
I'm assuming the credit card is supposed to push back a catch molded into one half of the shell, but I can't make it work, and I don't want to apply any more force for fear of breaking the unit's case. Any suggestions?
