How do I access the front fan on my PowerSpec G418?

Must I remove the drives and their casing to get at the fan, or can it be accessed by removing the front bezel?
Thank you.

    If you look at the front panel of the chassis, there is a lip underneath that lets you pull the front panel off. Once removed, you'll have access to the 4 screws that secure the fan to the chassis. You may need to remove the drive bays as I believe it obstructs the removal of the fan. If you need pictures of this process, I believe I have the chassis somewhere nearby. While I don't have the exact same components to recreate the G418, I should be able to demonstrate the fan removal process with what I have on-hand.

    EDIT: I grabbed the chassis and removed the front panel. You do NOT need to remove the drive bays as they should be riveted in place. The fan should be accessible from the front panel and easily removed without needing to remove anything else. Simply unplug it from the motherboard, unscrew the 4 screws and you should be good to go. Here is a picture of the removed panel & fan:
