Sony Vaio Notebook PCG-661L - CD/DVD Drive Won't Open

\015 It's a great little laptop, but the CD/DVD Drive will no longer open. For awhile I could use a straightened-out paperclip to open it, but now not even that will work. The cost of a replacement drive from Sony is prohibitive so I thought I'd try taking the drive out to see if I might be able to fix it. I'm guessing this is a mechanical problem, not an electrical one. Unfortunately I can't seem to locate a service or repair manual for this model, and since I'm not a computer repair expert I hate to go digging into the guts without a handbook to guide my way. Can someone direct me to such a manual, or describe how best to tackle the dissection of this computer? Thanks!\015
