Don't use a spudger to get this bracket off. If you do, you will bend it. It's stuck on with something more like double-sided tape than adhesive; so, what you want to do is cut the bracket away from the tape. I found a razor-knife worked well. Run it between the bracket and the surface on the top of the drive first, where there isn't actually any adhesive, just to make sure it's clear and free there. Then, run the blade between the bracket and the surface on the side of the drive, thereby cutting it away. It should then just lift off in one (unbent) piece. This 'bracket' (It's actually more of a 'cable guide' than a bracket.) is as thin as thick tin-foil. If you subject it to any sort of leverage, e.g. by using a spudger, you will inevitably bend and spoil it.
