Continue to pull back on the black plastic tab, use your other hand to press down on the click wheel, and begin to slide it out of the iPod.

It's important to press down on the click wheel as you slide it out. Otherwise, the click wheel could be scratched by the iPod's metal casing. To prevent the click wheel from getting scratched during removal/installation, you can place some blue painter's masking tape over the click wheel. It can be easily removed with no residue after all is finished.
