    • Before you proceed, make sure you pay special attention to the way the small plastic part that covers the radiator fins is held in place. You will need to know how it attaches when you reassemble the laptop.

    • You do not need to actually remove the part at this time. It is held in place by the rest of the back cover and will fall off when back cover is removed in the next step.

    • The last step is to remove the tray cover (the part that is exposed when the tray is closed).

    • The next two steps are not necessary if your replacement drive came with a tray cover already attached.

    • Open the drive by poking a straightened paper clip in the small hole on the front of the tray cover.

    • Locate the two tabs on the inside of the cover that hold it in place.

    • Use a spudger or similar tool to unclip each tab. The cover should come right off.
