Problem with ps3 caddy, Stuck inside the tray

Hello Everyone,

So when i was upgrading my PS3 lately. I installed the hdd bracket upside down into the tray, and now it's stuck. I am suspecting that some screws got loosen inside and now blocking the bracket from coming out. The PS3 is the 12 GB version.

So may question is: Is there any way to take the bracket out without damaging the PS3 or the hdd installed into the bracket?

Thanks alot

You cold try tearing the console down until you get to a point where you have more access to the caddy. If you are careful nothing should go wrong. Have a look at this guide for that. Also there you will see what tools you will need for that.
