Default Video card removal from Foxconn motherboard

Hi. I have a Foxconn MB (45CM-S socket 775 i945) and I want to remove my video card but it's stuck somewhere around the right of the slot. I tried to pull and push that yellow edge thing different ways but it won't come out. Is there anyone who knows how to do it?

Are there any other blown up pictures? I can't really tell what kind of mechanism is holding it, looks like a clamp of some sort? If you remove the ram can you get a finger in there to pull the upper part away from the card?

I have another Foxconn board with the same mechanism, it just grasps the end of the card, so you have to pull it out with a little more force than usual, as you found out. That's normal.
