ID Excel - loose nuts in control box

I dissembled this unit to ship it to someone, and when I took out the two screws that hold the control box to the arm, two nuts released INSIDE the unit.

How do I get this thing open to retrieve the nuts? I looked in the battery flaps, they are sealed, I took off the speaker grille with no luck, can't see any other screws holding this thing together UGH

Thank you,
Brian

Fisher said nobody is at the company that can help me, so they gave me the name of another company that services them. They would not tell me anything over the phone and would charge me $50 just to open it up and send it back. Double UGH!

Unless someone here has a better idea, I'll dremel the holes large enough to drop out the nuts and then figure out another way to attach it to the arm.

I think you take the nut loose on the coil connector in the back and push forward on it and all of the internals will slide out.

There may be 2 screws also back there by the coil connector that need to be removed also.
