Removing the Routing Engine from the Housing on an M40 Router

To remove the Routing Engine from the housing on an M40 router, follow this procedure:

  1. Place an electrostatic bag or antistatic mat on a flat, stable surface to receive the Routing Engine.
  2. Attach an ESD strap to your bare wrist and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
  3. Locate the Routing Engine inside the Routing Engine housing, using Figure 13 as a guide.
  4. If applicable, loosen the screws on the extractor clips at either end of the Routing Engine faceplate, using a Phillips screwdriver.
  5. Flip the ends of the extractor clips outward.
  6. Grasp the extractor clips and slide the unit about halfway out of the housing.   

    Be careful to slide the Routing Engine straight out of the slot in the housing. Damage can result if it gets lodged because of uneven movement.

  7. Place one hand under the Routing Engine to support it, slide it completely out of the chassis, and place it on the antistatic mat or in the electrostatic bag prepared in Step Step 1.
