My laptop model is GE66 12UGS and I'd like to upgrade my 16gb DDR5 rams to 32GB, but I don't know how to remove this metal plate, is it glued to the motherboard? how do I remove this, is it even removeable? if so, what tools should I use? thanks in advance

"Thanks! I ended up sliding a piece of hard paper underneath the corner with the arrow and lifted it up no problem. "

" I used a plastic pick to 'very, very carefully' luft up the corner by the arrow, then by each little connector holding it on. "

"As a precaution as that cover often made of metal without shielding, I disconnect the battery for safety and avoid shorting of components. "
