HP Elitebook 8470p Bottom case release latch broken

HP Recommended
Elitebook 8470p
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Having trouble opening the bottom case of an Elitebook 8470p. Theres two release latches, one is for the battery and one is for the bottom of the case that opens to the internal parts. There is no latch for the internal parts so I was wondering if there is an alternative way to opening it so I can replace the hard drive? I tried to stick a thin/narrow item like a stick to push the latch open but can't seem to figure what I'm trying activate in order to open it. If anyone has ideas or suggestions it would be greatly appreciated.
