Don't do it ;)
The two halfes of the plug are glued together and are not easy to open. It is possible only with violence.
This picture shows a new one from a printer (without pcb) which is the same like the plug of the wand and was never glued together. Maybe it helps you: http://maschke.de/hp41/a560.jpg
