Removal and replacement procedures
Preliminary replacement requirements
Plastic parts
Using excessive force during disassembly and reassembly can damage plastic parts. Use care when handling the
plastic parts. Apply pressure only at the points designated in the maintenance instructions.
Cables and connectors
Ä
CAUTION: When servicing the docking station, be sure that cables are placed in their proper locations during the reassembly
process. Improper cable placement can damage the docking station or the attached computer.
Cables must be handled with extreme care to avoid damage. Apply only the tension required to unseat or seat the
cables during removal and insertion. Handle cables by the connector whenever possible. In all cases, avoid
bending, twisting, or tearing cables. Be sure that cables are routed in such a way that they cannot be caught or
snagged by parts being removed or replaced. Handle flex cables with extreme care; these cables tear easily.
