How to replace a fan in A505-S69803 laptop

The fan recently died in my Toshiba A505-S69803 laptop.  I have a replacement fan, but I can't figure out how to disassemble the laptop and replace the fan.  I tried removing screws to get the back panel off, but it won't budge.  I've been trying to find assembly drawings for the laptop or better instructions.

HERE are your model's disassembly instructions and step 14 clearly shows the fan. It's listed as how to change ODD but clearly shows all the disassembly steps you will need for the fan.

Thank you!  This was very helpful.  I had to remove the motherboard to replace the fan, but this information definitely helped.
