How to remove hard drive from HP Pavilion a1514n Desktop?

I just bought a new desktop, and need to take my old one in to Best Buy for recycling, and I know they charge to remove the hard drive.

I've opened up the case and took out 2 screws holding the hard drive in the cage, and unplugged the cables...but I can't get to the two screws on the opposite side, which seem to be holding the drive in place.

Any advice to get to the elusive side? I've looked all over the web for the last 5 hours, with no success.

Thanks in advance, for any tips or advice!
