I didn't have any trouble getting this apart - I used a small screwdriver from a jewelry repair kit (the set of six super small screwdrivers). I slide it in on the left front where it was open and slid it towards the IR thing. After that clip opened up I just slid it over towards the DVD drive... presto. Will update when I put this back together in a couple days. This guide should warn in the beginning to keep the screws identified in some way or you'll have a %*^! of time putting it back together.
