Help! G5 Hard Drive stuck

I accidentally slid the Hard Drive in the top bay of my Powermac G5 ini upside down. After sliding the bottom one in right side up I and then realizing what I've done, I'm not able to pull the bottom one out to fix the problem. Does anyone know how I might get the casing that holds the hard drives in out of the tower so I can get the hard drives out? Thanks a lot

Andy

Those can get stuck in there even when put in the right way. I know I had to use needle nose pliers to pull my my hard drive. Try that.
