There is a screw in the side of the thumb-switch on the outside of the housing. Just remove the screw and the piece you touch with your thumb will pull off the tab, allowing you to remove the guts from the inside. As long as the tab is not broken, the guts are relatively easy to fix. Be sure to check the solder points in there, and lube everything generously with dielectric grease when reassembling.
