Some of them are very diffuclt; I have one I have not been able to open.  You can get free remotes at your nearest Xfinity Store.

 

The trick is to press on the slight indentation on the back and pull down, which should break the seal.  I assume you pulled out the tab.

Just got this new remote.  It is very small.  The back has a little ridge. It is very  tight and does not budge when pushed like the larger one.

I had to pull down real hard to break the seal.  Keep trying.

On the back of the remote, there is a slight raised tab.  Press on it and pull down until the seal is broken.

Omg! What a pain if it's never been opened (seal not broken). I pushed the tab diwn as hard as possible to create a slight opening and took a pocket knife and pushed down on the release button and it popped. Then slid right off. Now that's it's been opened once it's an ease.

turn the remote over. look for a single raised line molded to the sliding battery cover. press down very hard (the first time at least) and slide cover toward bottom of the remote.
