Does anyone have experience with this odd CPU fan problem? (picture)

Soooo yesterday I was about to install my new CPU fan, when I ran into a problem showed in the the picture below.

So as you can see the backplate of the old CPU fan is stuck behind the metal separation or whatever (no it won't come out). I did recently upgrade my mobo, so I guess that's why it's not lined up correctly with the window. Is there anything I can do to get this backplate out and get the new one in (easily)?
