Teleconverter stuck on lens

Well I ran into an issue when trying to dismount my teleconverter from my lens. The release tab seems to be broken. It wiggles around and just generally feels like it is no longer connected to what it needs to be connected to. The problem is that it is still connected to the lens.

I have it off the camera but am now looking at ways to get it off the lens. Since the screws are accessible should I just take it apart to get at the release tab? Do I risk any major harm to the teleconverter? Especially considering it is going to need service anyway, most likely be replaced is taking it apart the best course of action?
