Anderson window operator crank cover removal

I have an 80's vintage window (don't know the model number) and was having trouble removing the crank cover without cracking it. Several searches didn't provide a good explanation so here is one. This cover is held with two screws but, once removed must still be carefully pried off. Insert a putty knife between the casement and the cover, then using a screwdriver or, better still, a very small pry tool, pry the center away from the casement. There is a single ridge that needs to be pried loose. See the attached photo highlighting the ridge.

So what's the question? Is there some type of glue holding it besides the two screws? Try to score behind it with a utility knife.

I think he is trying to give us a heads up. There is no question other than to save would be DIY'rs the pain of discovery he experienced.
