Hard Drive

Before you begin, position the computer upside down, resting the computer on an ESD mat or other soft surface and remove the following:

  • bottom housing
  • EMI cover

1. Disconnect the following cables on the back of the hard drive:

  • Hard drive power cable
  • Hard drive data cable

Note: The hard drive carrier shown was removed from the computer. However, you can easily remove the hard drive while the carrier is still screwed down to the chassis. Continue with the procedure.

Using a #1 Phillips screwdriver, remove the four hard drive mounting screws.

3. Slide the hard drive out of the CD/HD carrier.

Note: Return the drives without the cables or carriers. Exchange Apple hard drive modules like-for-like in Apple packaging. Failure to comply with this requirement may result in a packaging noncompliance charge. Refer to the parts database for more information.

Hard Drive Replacement

When installing the hard drive into the CD/HD carrier, make sure the hard drive is component side up (as shown).
