How to remove LawnMate 7

I'm trying to remove an old LawnMate 7 controller so that I can replace it. But I don't see any visible fasteners, and the front panel doesn't seem to pop off in any obvious way. I tried popping off the knobs, but those seem firmly attached. Is there some tricky way to pop the panel off? Or do I just need to take a dremel or something to it?

Picture:


Or see it here if that didn't work


Thanks for any ideas.

That controller appears to be supported by a wall bracket. Bracket(s) attach to wall, controller slides onto bracket. Maybe one screw to secure it into position.

keyhole fastened

Thanks for the hint. It turned out there was a screw hiding behind the wiring. Once I removed it, I could slide it up off the other hidden screws.

Thank you for the follow-up. The instruction sheet I read from might have been for a metal enclosure.

Either one, along with many other plastic controllers of this type, have one or two lower screws that secure it in place, after the controller is slid into place from one or two keyhole slots higher up.
