I've never worked on a Quicksilver G4, but I know on my G4 MDD I have to take the front top and bottom handle thingies off in order to take the front faceplate off. Usually Apple likes to use those clips but if you pushed them through, it may just be that you have to take off the clear corner handle things.

Thankyou for your reply.
In the end the reason that I couldnt follow the tutorials was because They were the wrong ones, maybe mine isnt a quiksilver because I had to take out the casing in which the dvd plaver is housed...undoing several screws. The front doesnt come off in any way shape or form.
