Removing an Air Filter

The air filter is located in the front of the chassis below the card cage. The air filter weighs approximately 1 lb (0.5 kg).

To remove the air filter (see Figure 5):

  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.
  2. Unwrap any cables on the cable management system and remove the cables from the tray. Arrange the cables so that they do not block the front of the cable management system and tray, and secure them with temporary fasteners so that they are not supporting their own weight as they hang from the connector.

    Caution: Do not let fiber-optic cable hang free from the connector. Do not allow fastened loops of cable to dangle, which stresses the cable at the fastening point.

  3. Simultaneously pull the two releases labeled PULL on the cable management system. Lift it up and outward to lock it in place to access the air filter.
  4. Slide the air filter tray out of the chassis.
  5. Lift the air filter out of the air filter tray.
