of the unit, and pull the bracket assembly into the main cavity and out of the unit. To replace the hard drive, detach the four Phillips number two screws that secure the hard drive to the hard drive bracket. Lift the hard drive out of the hard drive
bracket. Before installing a new hard drive, first make sure that there are rubber grommets installed in each side hole of the hard drive bracket. Replace any missing rubber grommets. Place the hard drive spindle side down into the hard drive bracket. Secure the hard drive to the bracket with
the four Phillips number two flat-head screws. There is a tab at the front edge of the hard drive bracket that slides into a slot on the chassis.

To replace the hard drive bracket assembly, place the hard drive assembly slightly to
the rear of its final location within the guides. Then slide the bracket forward until the tabs and slots have engaged. Secure the hard drive bracket to the PC with its Phillips number two screw. Carefully reattach the hard drive cable to
