Lenovo Yoga 700 14 backplate not coming off?

Earlier today I was trying to remove the back of my Lenovo Yoga 700 (14 inch model).  I removed all the screws, and followed the hardware maintenance manual.  When I got to prying the thing off, the left, right, and back (near the fan) sides popped off with relative ease.  However, the front end (the side opposite the fan) would not come off.  I tried using a small flathead screwdriver to pry it off, but I was worried about it cracking.  I decided to just screw the backplate back on and not mess with it any more.  This is where my problem arises.  The backplate won't re-seat properly because of a standoff that keeps the SSD in place.  I  didn't notice it until this morning, but there is a slight bowing in the chassis.  I know I need to fully remove the backplate to re-seat it properly, but I don't want to break anything.  What should I do?

Never mind guys, I eventually got it reseated with a bit of prodding with a mechanical pencil.  Everything is working fine.
