Can't work out how to remove backplate

Hi, I'm trying to help out a friend's elderly mother with her computer. It's running Windows 10 22H2, and working fine but needs the CMOS battery replaced. But has a slow 5400rpm HDD, so I was also going to swap in an SSD. I got all screws out of the backplate (inc. the hidden one underneath the silver stand), and checked there were no hidden screws under the stickers. But I still can't get the backplate off.

If I raise the stand halfway, the backplate moves freely roughly a 1/4" in all directions, but gets caught on the stand. I carefully bent the backplate up on each side to look internally, and there don't seem to be any other mounting points still attached.

However, the stand mounting brackets are screwed to pillars under the backplate, so I can't undo these. I then tried to loosen / remove the nuts to take the stand off. But the space is so tight I can't get small sockets in; a thin 7mm ring spanner fits on the nuts, but there's no room to turn it.

Leader is an Australian brand, and being an old model, so I couldn't find a manual. So I'm stuck.... However I'm wondering if Leader may re-badged a generic case, and that someone out there might have encountered one like it.... Thanks everyone!

Hi everyone, SOLVED! I went into my local electronics store looking for tools etc., and a young bloke spent a while having a look with me, even commenting it looked like the stand might have been pop-riveted on. He finally said, "hang on, is this rectangle on the top of the stand a sticker?". Sure enough, it was a REALLY THICK sticker, with 3 philips head screws underneath....

So, impressive that the case manufacturer had the sticker so perfectly aligned and colour-matched to the plastic, that they even managed to trick someone with much younger/ better eyesight than mine :D
