Sekonic Auto-Leader 38 repair

It's a beautiful little meter and looks like it has hardly been used. The needle, however, does not respond at all to light, even when I open the large cell on the bottom. I would like, at least, to open it up to check on the remote possibility that there is a problem with internal connections but I don't see any obvious way. Any suggestions?

Sometimes one can find a bad connection that can be re-soldered, or otherwise reattached, when you open them up.

These are usually many of these for sale on eBay at low prices, so you can also buy another one. They are interesting meters, although of dubious reliability because of their age.

Any ideas how to get this meter apart? The only screw that the one which zero-adjusts the meter and another one which for the clip which holds the large cell in place on the bottom. There are also a couple of rivet heads visible on top on either side of the word "Sekonic" below the meter.
