Can I take the front panel off my Acer aspire gx-781?

I can see there are the 3 barbs on one side of the cabinet(inside), but is it also on the other side? and how should I get to them if there is?

(Sorry for google translate)

    Hi,
    If you are asking about these plastic tabs, you have to pull them away from the chassis and swing the front bezel like a door to remove it.

    Hi Brummy

    Do you know how to get the side panel off ? if even possible, i mean the side panel on the backside of motherboard.
    I want to replace the stock CPU cooler but need to put a backplate on there.
    I see almost everything in this case is by the nails (or whatever you call those things) not normal screws.
    I really dont want to take out the whole MB if possible as i just finished putting in a RTX2070 which was an absolute nightmare with this case.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi,
    Yes, it's hard to remove the panel on the backside of the motherboard, you may have to do a complete disassembly and it means removing the motherboard because the rivets are used in this model. It seems only a panel on one side only removable.

    Ok thanks mate, not what i wanted to hear but geuss there is no other way then to take the whole thing apart.
    Why they use rivets in this case is beyond me it the dumbest thing iv'e seen in a casing ever.
