Very carefully - you will need a new stanley knife blade.
Remove the "emergency key" from the end and start at that end of the card. Slice into join and very carefully work your way along. It is not an easy job as it it held together very well. I have only ever tried on a "broken" card so had nothing to lose.
Chances are the switch has become detatched from pcb ( a common fault) - stick it back on and resolder connections.
You will need a good quality "superglue" to glue the card back together - also make sure there are no rough edges or the card may not go in the reader, or worse still - get stuck in!
