    Removing a C3000 or C5000 Fan Module

    C3000 and C5000 Controllers have three fan modules located on the rear of the chassis. The fan module is a hot-removable and hot-insertable field replaceable unit (FRU): You can remove and replace it without powering off the controller or disrupting controller functions.

    Ensure that you have the following parts and tools available:

    • A Phillips (+) screwdriver, number 2

    To remove a fan module from a C3000 or C5000 Controller (see Figure 1):

    1. Loosen the captive screws on either side of the fan module.
    2. Grasp the captive screws and slide the fan module out of the chassis.
