Bonjour, j’ai un mac pro 5,1 de 2010 dont les clapets (ou les trappes, j’ignore le terme exact) de la baie des lecteurs de disques restent ouverts à chaque fois qu’ils sont actionnés. Je n’ai pas réussi à les démonter, et les 2 gouttes de 3 en 1 sur les glissières latérales n’ont rien changé au problème. Je n’ai trouvé aucun tutoriel, ni même aucune occurrence de ce problème sur le web. Pourriez-vous me donner quelques conseils ? Merci.
