I was replacing my CPU cooler when I accidentally took out the screw that hold the handle/lever used to open the left side panel because I thought it was the screw that is holding the steel bar that obstructed me to install the new CPU cooler.

I put the screw back in, but somehow the latch mechanism to open the side panel was not working (it does nothing when I pull up the handle/lever), it must have been detached from the latch mechanism. Not knowing this, I put the side panel back on, it locked in, and now I cannot open the left side panel as the mechanism to open it is not working.

Is there anyway that I can manually open the side panel without using the latch mechanism? The computer is running perfectly fine at the moment, but I won't be able to upgrade anything or troubleshoot if anything goes wrong as I can't access my computer hardware without opening the left side panel.
