That plastic bezel has two places that wrap around the hinges.  Did you try to open the screen really wide and give it a shot.  The bezel just snaps in place, no screws or retainers to mess with.   Off chance you might have to pop the keyboard and palm rest off the base, or at least loosen the palm rest enough to get the bezel off.
