While holding the DVD drive with one hand, grasp the DVD drive lens retaining pin (closest to the screw that was just removed) with a pair of needle nose pliers.

Slide the retaining pin out towards the edge of the DVD drive housing.

Once the pin moves easily, grab it with your fingers and pull it out of the DVD drive housing completely.
