    Installing the M40e Fan Tray

    To install the fan tray (see Figure 1):

    Caution: When sliding the fan tray into the chassis, take care not to catch and pinch any dangling PIC cables with the edges of the tray. Also make sure your fingers are not near the fans, which start spinning as soon as the fan tray contacts the midplane.

    1. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis. For more information about ESD, see Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage to an M Series, MX Series, or T Series Router.
    2. Grasp the sides of the fan tray and align the rear of the tray with the guides inside the chassis.
    3. Slide the fan tray all the way into the chassis.
    4. Tighten the thumbscrew at each end of the cable management system.
    5. Rearrange the PIC cables in the cable management system. For more information about proper cable arrangement, see Maintaining M40e PICs and PIC Cables.
