First do not use all upper case, it's rude and considered shouting.
Remove both side covers, next release the 2 plastic clips behind the front panel at the top, then release the two bottom ones, one on each side.

Can you see the plastic clips inside and reach them to release?
If not seen there, look underneath for them or it could be one larger one in the middle as on some of their back panels.

Firstly, with the side off, and looking at the CD/DVD unit - is it
held in by a couple of small screws or is it a plastic clip? If
you remove the screws/detach the clip can you move the drive
in its mounting? If you cannot get to the other side of the
drive/case then, generally, it isn't fixed there anyway. Next,
as anmor says, can you see/feel any plastic clips at the rear
of the front panel - not behind the motherboard, just down the
edge of the case? These should just need a gentle, but firm,
push to un-hinge & detach the front panel, so letting the drive
slide out.

Any further ahead?
