Anakin’s Jedi Starfighter - How to take apart?

Hi everyone,

So I dug up my Jedi Starfighter toy from this line, and it brought back so many memories from wherever I‘d fly it as a kid, along with the lightsaber attack Anakin I cherished so much. One of those memories was the fact that the bottom of the left wing would never open all the way. After getting curious and with my toolkit in hand, I pried it open and saw what I thought to be the culprit: the saber hilt from that exact Anakin (and which I spent the better part of 15 years searching for)

After getting it out, I sealed everything back up only to find that the bottom left wing still won’t release when I press the button inbetween the rear thrusters. Has anyone had experience taking apart this particular toy? I’m not sure if I can get a closer look at the wing mechanism without keeping the two halves of the fighter pried over forever with my hands.
