Dont use force! It seems like you should really pry on this thing until it pops open but its really easier to pop all of the clips around the entire ipod then it "Should" come open.
I used a thin potty knife for this and found it worked ok but had to use a second one to keep one side from re-clipping as i worked on the other side.
Just my experience...
I recently bought my Core i5 2.5 base model.
Upon opening my case, i noticed that the original drive was not on the upper most slot but in the buried location. This makes installation that much easier. Unfortunately, my sata ribbon cable had a tear in it and could not be installed.
Reading the above comments, it seems i will need to switch the drives? If it was not for that, there would be no need to remove the logic board. You only need to remove the Fan assembly and the plastic cover and fit the drive in. the grommets are already there but the screws are not. you may need to fins screws that will fit in the grommets as the ones provided in this kit may be too skinny.
Ill have to try it once i get the ribbon replaced.
