DON’T do this! you’ll likely hurt yourself. I tried doing this way and it just required more force than i was comfortable applying. just unscrew the HDD off the black “lever” piece. The HDD will just come right out. The side opposite of the black “lever” are secured with pins, don’t bother trying to unscrew from there.
This part just came right off, I didn’t have to disconnect anything. Meaning, the adhesive was pretty loose and this along with the next piece just came right off together. Basically fell off :p
