For access, remove these FRUs in order:
|1||M2 x 3 mm, small-head, nylon-coated (2)||Silver||0.189 Nm(1.85 kgfcm)|
|2||M2 x 9.5 mm, wafer-head, nylon-coated (2)||Black||0.189 Nm(1.85 kgfcm)|
Attention: Do not handle the fan roughly. Improper handling of the fan can cause distortion or deformation and imperfect contact with components.
|4||M2 x 9.5 mm, wafer-head, nylon-coated (2)||Silver||0.189 Nm(1.85 kgfcm)|
In step , release the wireless antenna cables from the cable guide of the fan assembly.
Before you attach the fan assembly to the computer, apply thermal grease, at an amount of 0.2 grams, on the part marked [a] as in the following figure. Either too much or too less application of grease can cause a thermal problem due to imperfect contact with a component. In some modes, you need to peel the thin film off from the rubber [b].
For the integrated graphics models:
For the switchable graphics models:
Make sure that the fan connector is attached firmly.
When attaching the fan assembly to the frame, take care not to damage the heat sink and the cable guides ([b]) of the fan assembly.
