Unfortuantely those covers stick and you have to grab them with a needle nose pliers or pry with a small screwdriver to remove them. Below is a video on how to remove and access it, but again, it's easier in this video than what you are likely experiencing so if you have pliers, pry on the side where you see him prying on with a screwdriver. Then grab the top center nipple on the dome with pliers and pull up.
