Here is a pdf that will show you how on page 49, I know you may have to put a little elbow grease into on the Dell Dimension 2400. I have had this problem also, sometimes they are just a little stubborn.

Hope this helps.

Are their any screws on the back on that side? If so remove them first. Press the lever down then pull the sheetmetal toward you,like a hinge door, with the hinge in the front.
The Link is to your manual which should have directions in it.

There is an L shaped lever on the back. Press and hold that down and push side panel of case back. It will lift off. When you put it back on just align the slots on the bottom edge and push forward to close it.
