I use a small soldering iron to heat the screw while applying pressure to open the case, once the area around the screw is warm enough the case will open.
I then use a set of small pliers to remove the screw, they use thread lock when manufacturing and sometimes if not enough pressure is used or the wrong type of screwdriver is used you will strip the head.
99% of the time I can then reassemble the key and you wouldnt notice, if a new key is required you can pick them up quite cheaply off a well know auction website but you would need to get it cut as the blade is none transferable.
You could always go the full hog and click my signature and i'll sort the rest lol.
If you would like my help with any of the above just give us a shout.
