How to remove hard drive from hp pavilion desktop

I am trying to relocation the tough drive on my desktop computer computer(HP Pavilion p6620f), yet I am presently having trouble with removing the steel cage that encloses the tough drive. This is the recommended strategy of replacing the hard drive, according to these instructions: http://www.manualslib.com/manual/359309/Hp-Pavilion-P6230f.html?page=21#manual

 

I am stuck on step 13 from that hands-on in specific. I push down on the "#1" latch, and also pull forward, yet it"s not sliding forward. I am uncertain what I am doing wrong, however the point is not relocating. In addition, I removed the motherboard to rerelocate the screws on the side of the cage to remove the tough drive instead of the metal cage and also I am likewise unable to remove the tough drive from the cage.  Do you guys have any type of principle what I may be doing wrong or simply any type of method you have in mind to safely remove this thing? I attached a photo of what I am functioning via. Thank you

Thank you, but that hand-operated seems to have similar instructions as the one I was utilizing prior to for rerelocating the tough drive.

On the bracket via the 2 screws (2) in photo 13, I would certainly give it a light tap via a hammer while pushing the latch. This may be enough to break it loose.

Thank you, yet it didn"t work-related. I am not certain just how tough I am expected to tap it with the hammer, yet I would say I tapped it reasonably hard, and also it"s still not budging.

If you tapped it fairly tough and also it did not budge I would certainly not go additionally. You may desire to take it to a great computer system shop and view how much they would certainly charge to gain it out. 

 

Edit: See this video. Tbelow appears to be two extra screws at the bottom of the cage.

No, I was just doing it mistakenly. The bottom of the metal cage has 4 latches and it connects to 4 empty slots at the bottom of the situation. Tright here were 2 extra screws on the side of the cage keeping the tough drive in location, yet.

I"m sorry I wasn"t able to gain this up quick enough.  My knuckles will tell you all around those "Press dvery own and slide forward" passeras in the HP manuals.  A client bought dozens and wanted bigger difficult drives mounted.  The cases were a solid 35 to 20 in the injury department.  Many bandaids and anti-biotic cream later, tright here was no basic solution.  Some forced simply a solid press on the tab, others, as revealed took comprehensive force to discommunicate the latch.  Reverse dis-assembly, approaching from the various other side just complicates the issue.
