Removing an Uplink Module from an EX4200 Switch

  1. Attach the electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to the ESD point on the chassis.

    If a grounding strap is not available, touch the exposed, bare metal of the switch with the other hand to ground yourself and the component.

  2. Loosen the screws that secure the flip-up door covering the uplink module slot on the front panel of the switch by using the cross-head screwdriver provided with the uplink module kit and flip the door upward.
  3. Insert the ball end of the screwdriver in the keyhole on the front panel of the uplink module and slide the screwdriver to the narrow part of the keyhole (see Figure 1).

    Ensure the screwdriver does not slip out of the keyhole when you pull the uplink module out of the switch chassis.

  4. Using both hands, gently pull the screwdriver to slide the uplink module halfway out of the chassis (see Figure 2).
  5. Place one hand under the uplink module to support it and slide it completely out of the chassis.
  6. Slide the screwdriver out of the keyhole.
  7. Place the uplink module in an antistatic bag or on an antistatic mat placed on a flat, stable surface.
