Default Temco Clock Movement Dismantling Question

I have a lovely old Temco clock here, from the 1930s I presume. It works very well, but has developed quite a load tapping (or ticking sound), like a dull knocking.

I thought it was time to have a look inside and see what is going on. I can dismantle most stuff but am so far failing, I have little experience of clocks TBH.

I pushed the metal tabs in hoping the glass fascia came away, but it only manages to pull the movement back, complete with hands. No way to get under the glass at the front etc.

I removed 4 screws and was disappointed to see they merely secured the clock numbers to the backing board

Do I just carefully pull it off, removing the hands in the process? Presumably once the movement is out I can get the backing board / clock face out - or can I
