Note: Applying labels to the base cover:

The new base cover FRU is shipped with a kit containing labels of several kinds. When you replace the base cover, you need to apply the following labels:

[4] Battery word label

[6] Homologation label

Following labels need to be peeled off from the old base cover, and need to be put on the new base cover.

[1] MAC address label

[2] Wireless WAN MAC address label

[3] Windows license label (COA)

[5] Serial number label

[7] FFC label

[8] SIRM label

[9] SIM ICC ID label

[10] Brazil Anatel BG label

[11] Israel label (SIM model)

[12] Brazil Anatel Bluetooth label

For some models, you also need to apply one or two FCC labels. Check the old base cover; if it has one or two FCC labels, find duplicates of them in the label kit and apply them to the new base cover.

For the location of each label, refer the following figures:
