Replacing a T640 Craft Interface

 

The craft interface is hot-insertable and hot-removable. When you install the craft interface, allow several minutes for the display to reflect the current state of the router. Before you remove the craft interface, remove the front upper fan tray. For instructions on removing a front fan tray, seeRemoving the T640 Standard or Quiet Front Fan Trays.

  2. Completely loosen the screws at the four corners of the craft interface.
  3. Insert the blade of a flat-blade screwdriver into the slot on one side of the craft interface, and then gently pry that side out from the chassis.
  4. Insert the blade of a flat-blade screwdriver into the slot on the other side of the craft interface, and then gently pry that side out from the chassis.
