When you take off the cover in the back - on my G5 imac there were two plastic rings that you fingers slip into. Pull in both and it releases the existing ram module. Different G5 models aree different. Best to look up Replacing Ram in APPLE support, and find the instructions for you exact model. My isight has only one slot for ram, and there is ram on the motherboard as well. Older models have two slots. Be specific in your search before opening up the computer.
If you have an iSight, the 512 RAM is soldered to the motherboard and can't be removed.
If you have a Rev A or Ambient Light model, unscrew the case, the RAM will be on the right side in slots, and it will be very apparent how to remove it. When you install the new RAM, make sure to slide it in until it clicks.
