Replacement Hard Drive on Dell XPS 15 L501X

This question has been answered by ejn63

I just bought a new hard drive o install into my Dell XPS 15. I turned it over, opened it up, and there is no way to access the hard drive without entirely removing the bottom case! I need to know how to remove this case without damaging any parts. I have already removed all the screws, and it is still clipped in. 

Does anyone know where I could find detailed instructions on how to replace my hard drive, or what Dell recommends in this case?
