Remove the dome shaped cover first (be careful, the cable underneath is not very long, so don't pull the cover away too much). The cover should come off without tools, just kinda squeeze it a little and gentle pull on it.
Once the cover is removed, you'll see a plug at the very end of the shock absorber rod. Take two flat head screw drivers and pry it straight up, be very careful, the pins inside this plug are tiny....
