Make a small hole (enough for the wires to pass) using a pocket knife or a heated screwdriver.

My bad, I thought you were talking about the electronic parts inside the remote. Sorry

umm, wouldnt it make more sense to put the switch on the end, so you dont have to take it apart every tie you want to turn it on?
I'm trying to think of a way to take the faux A button off, and rig a pushbutton switch under it, so you could replace the top part of the wiimote back on...or a way to fix a switch to the trigger underneath. ( I got one of these from the local Walgreens, near the checkout)

The B button has a pin that make it bounce back so maybe you can use that to rig a push button switch.
