I'm trying to install a new cdrw on a friends computer but is having the hardest time removing the chassis to remove the old cd drive so I can install the new one. I have installed cdrw and dvd drives many times but this type of chassis is giving me a hard time. Her computer is not flat ontop like most puters and there is no screws holding the old driver in place it's like little rivets. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I cant find this particular model. Is it 5WV254? If so there's no .pdf to show how it looks like inside.
The way to take out the drive or add additional is 1) remove side panel from case 2) dettach the front bezel from the little tabs holding it in place 3) unscrew or allign the metal tabs so you can take out or slide in the disc drive.
