Question Info

Last updated July 4, 2018 Views 1 Applies to:

Push the drive into the chassis while pulling on the tab.


While maintaining tension on the tab, slide the drive out of the chassis.


The tab pulls back a piece of plastic that holds the drive in place. Your goal should be to put the tab in tension with the drive caddy, not compress the caddy's tab against the console chassis.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
