Disconnect the hard drive thermal sensor from the top edge of the logic board.
Pull the connector parallel to the face of the logic board.
Remove the two 9.2 mm T10 Torx screws securing the hard drive bracket to the rear case.
Lift the hard drive from its left edge enough to clear the inverter and pull it toward the left edge of your iMac to unseat the mounting pins from the chassis.
During installation, do not push the rubber grommets through the chassis with the hard drive mounting pins as retrieving them will require removing the logic board.
