Mines not PB but the front just pulls off.

This one doesn't pull off and as its not mine I dont want to force it. The Drive bays are all covered with fancy doors on the front.

The plastic retainers are part of the front pannel,there are four retainers 2 each side,gently push lugs inward from inside of comp whilst easing the front away.

refitting is simply a case of locating and push fit.

good luck
