how to remove metal shield from a500's rear panel?

hi,
I'm trying to remove the metal shield from an a500's motherboard.
I've removed it from the bottom, but now it's stuck on the rear panel (rgb port, power supply, etc.).
I'm trying to figure out how dismantle it, but I've no idea.
Any suggestions?
Thanks.

Unscrew the nuts beside all of the ports on the rear. 6mm socket IIRC.

Correct! Except it's a 5.5mm socket that's required.

I always used pliers and a dollop of patience
