Help removing faceplate from TSSTcorp CDDVDW TS-L633C

Hi, i can’t figure out how to remove the faceplate from my TSSTcorp CDDVDW TS-L633C which came in my Advent Sienna 500 laptop. Attached are photos, i’ve tried taking out the 2 screws but that didn’t help, i’ve tried prodding the side and other bits but that didn’t help. My sony optiarc BC-5500S faceplate comes off easily, just 2 screws and pressing on a release spring on the side of the drive but this TSSTcorp CDDVDW TS-L633C just won’t seem to come off, can’t figure out how to. I wanna replace the dvdrw with my bluray reader drive and put the new faceplate on but its just not happening :frowning:

Here are photos:
