Attach the ESD-preventive wrist strap to your wrist and connect its leash to one of the ESD connection sockets: on the front (PLIM) side of the chassis there is one ESD connection socket right above the fan controllers. On the rear (MSC) side of the chassis there are two ESD connection sockets right above the cable management tray in the center of the chassis (left and right). You can also connect the ESD-preventive wrist strap leash to any bare metal surface on the chassis.
Using the screwdriver, loosen the two captive screws on the fan tray faceplate. If necessary, use a step platform to reach the upper fan tray comfortably.
Pull firmly on the two handles to pull it free; two people are required to remove the fan tray.
Grasp the fan tray handles and pull it straight out to disconnect the fan tray from the connector mounted on the front of the fan tray bay on the rear (MSC) side of the chassis. Slide the fan tray halfway from the fan tray bay.
Use your free hands to support the fan tray, then slide the fan tray completely from the fan tray bay.
Set the fan tray carefully aside.
To install the replacement fan tray using two hands to support it, position the fan tray in front of the fan tray bay (label is on top).
Slide the fan tray into the fan tray bay. Stop when the fan tray makes contact with the chassis connector in the back of the fan tray bay.
Firmly push on the fan tray handles to seat the fan tray connector in the chassis connector. When completely seated, the fan tray faceplate flanges meet
the rear (MSC) side
of the chassis.
Tighten the two captive screws on the fan tray faceplate.
