Answers :

Can do. You must first remove the handle; 4 screws, 2 near to the base, 2 upper in the handle. Lift the little tab beneath the handle, and it snaps open. Disconnect the cable from circuit board. Then remove the grey plate around the stick with throttle-scale and 5 allen key screws on it (fake ones, can't remove them!): I simply lifted it, quite hard, with a flat head screwdriver. Raw force seems to be the best option here, no damage done. Then the top cover will lift off.

The grey plate was pretty annoying. More so when you think about that it's there just for good looks - imho failing there - and, what's more important, the effort could have been used to make the mechanics better and at least somewhat accurate. Oh well..
