Skip this step if your computer does not have an Airport card.
  • Skip this step if your computer does not have an Airport card.

  • Firmly grasp the plastic tab attached to the Airport card and pull up and to the left.

  • Disconnect the antenna cable from the left side of the Airport card.

I'm not sure what the point is for this step. This helped not at all in getting the drive out. Also, the cable is taped down, and must be untaped before the card will come out.

  • Bend the silver metal EMI clip so that it is vertical. This part may fall out after removing the DVD drive.

  • The EMI clip is not essential for reassembling the computer. If the clip falls out, don't worry about putting it back in.

You don't actually have to bend the EMI clip. You can use a 2mm or smaller slotted screwdriver to pry the clip up and out.

Sugar Fish was dead-on about using a 2mm slotted screwdriver! But I must say, I’m not sure why this step is here at this point in the guide. I went ahead and removed the clip back in Step 4, after having removed the RAM, with no adverse issues.
