Remove hard drive from old G5

by mdesign33 / September 24, 2014 3:32 AM PDT

Want to dispose old PowerMac G5 desktop but can't open desktop to remove hard drive. The only apparent way to open is four screws on bottom but after unscrewing them nothing is loosened or capable of being pried. Anybody know how to open?

Thank you R. Proffitt. Another youtube video showed me how to open door. The video you suggested showed me how to remove hard drive.
