How to remove and replace the hard drive in HP Pavilion Verde SE a6645f PC

a6000
Microsoft Windows Vista

Went online to find a manual that shows assembly and disassembly of the device.

Didn't find a manual.

So far, I have removed the side cover.

I have removed the front panel.

The hard drive is in a "cage" at the bottom of the front side of the tower.

I removed two screws that secured the "cage" to the case.

Still cannot remove the "cage".

The "cage" seems to have tabs that are in a slot in the case assembly behind where the front cover was.

And there seems to be tabs that secure the "cage" to the case on/near the left  side panel (that is still attached to the case).

I am tempted to bend the tabs but I don't think the design would require that.

Help.  I'm stuck!
