    I have the tear down manual for my 2006 Mac Pro, but it doesn't tell how to remove the shutter doors for the DVD drives. There is one obvious screw, which I removed, but the other side of the unit appears to be clipped into place. I don't want to pull too hard as it's made of soft plastic. Anyone done this? I would sure like to salvage this part and replace the broken one in my Pro.

    Thanks,
