    Looking at the bottom of the tender I see notches in the base of the tender at the sides. I see at least two on each side. There are usally tabs there. Carefully use a screwdriver to pry the tender side out slightly to release the tab at the same time pulling up on the bottom of the tender. Be very careful because you could crack the tender side.
