Installing RAM in HP Proliant DL580 G5

I feel pretty silly posting this up here but it is Sunday and I was handed this project on short notice and never opened this model Server up before.  

I've been tasked with what seems like a simple project, upgrade our HP Proliant dl580 G5 Server with more memory however upon opening the thing up I noticed that instead of having the RAM out where I can access it, it is instead located under fans/cables/ect.  I took a few screen-shots to illustrate my point.  

I'm hoping one of you guys took one of these apart and could just tell me what I'm looking for here.  I've been sitting here looking at this thing for a half hour now looking for some sort of tray release or otherwise with no luck and can't seem to reach any of my team to ask them about this.

I read through that article but I'm still stuck.  I am not seeing where they are referring to release latches. There is one blue lever that doesn't seem to do much as I push it down nothing happens in the middle that I am still tinkering with and I assume the processors are located in the front part but they did not make it very intuitive as far as taking apart.  I need a visual guide if there even is one or a more specific explanation of what I am looking for.

Thank you for your research on the matter as this was exactly what I was looking for.  Specifically the video's I found here:

the video helps but my issue is that the handle wont lower, seems to be locked. I have installed memory in others fine but these 2 servers both have latches that wont lower all the way...

Edit. Just found out that on the side of both of these servers, the installer added a screw on the right side which was preventing the handle from lowering. Removed this and all is well. sneaky security measure.

Stablepath - you are correct there was one screw that was causing an issue that was not illustrated in the video.
