I am in the process of opening up my 15" G4 PowerBook, 1.33mhz, to replace/upgrade my hard dive. I downloaded a great tutorial from iFixit, photos, drawing and all that handy stuff.

I have gotten as far as what they referred to as the hardest part of the job and have a question. The latch that is above the CD drive slot is giving me a real pain. The instuctions said that a decent amount of force will be required to move this latch forward, but this is hard to beleive.

Is there a trick to this?
