      If you reach under there you'll feel a post with a clip on it. the clip is tricky to get off if you've never done it. you have to pry and slide it. You can do it with your fingers but sometimes it's easier with a short flat driver. You pry/lift only the top part of the clip the lower will slide off.

      Here is a pic of the same type of clip.
