Default Key Fob Shell Replacement - Is there a guide out there?

Hi,
My fob is falling apart (model 30630065). I've purchased a replacement shell off ebay and I could have sworn there was a guide out there somewhere for this fob type but I can't seem to find one. Has anyone come across such literature?

If it's the combined switch bladed key with built in fob I'm pretty sure the whole thing pops apart with a small screwdriver.

Thank you, Clarkey. I was tempted to do just that. The thing is 1/3 apart anyway. I'm actually surprised that it hasn't popped open on its own. I'm sure it will when it falls to the floor next.

Is it the square fob from Ph1/Ph1.5? Or the triangle fob from Ph2?
