Question OVP relay resolder

I am trying to get the cover off the OVP without destroying it . I loosened around the top where the aluminium cover is crimped to the top and still there seems to be something holding it from coming apart . The problem I'm having is intermittent ABS light on and a surging of idle speed (usually together) and from what I've gathered researching here that is the culprit. The dealer wants $160Cdn for a new one and if all it takes is a few minutes with my soldering iron, it makes sense to try that first . I fixed my ACC amp in my 123 by resoldering it and saved myself about $400. Anyone get an OVP apart without destroying it please let me know the trick , thanks in advance .
