Brake pad sensor wire?

I need a little advice/help. I am in the middle of a DIY rear brake pad replacement (first time doing any pad replacement) & got the job done on the left rear. Everything seems to have gone smooth. I am now doing the right rear but have run into a small snag. I can not figure out how to open the brake pad sensor control box to unplug the sensor. Can anyone give me any tips on how to get the control box open so I can unplug the sensor? Thanks

Thanks for the reply. I finished the job earlier today. I was working in a poorly lit garage last night but when I started back today in the daylight I could see how to open the control box. The wear sensor had been triggered so I had to replace it. Everything went smooth.
