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:

[1] Product label
[2] Homologation label
[3] Non-mercury label
Note: If the computer you are servicing is an LED-backlight LCD model, you need to paste this label so that the notice for mercury is covered.

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

[3] Windows license label (COA)
[4] Serial number label
[5] MAC address label
[6] IMEI label
[7] FCC-ID label for Wireless LAN
[8] FCC-ID label for Wireless WAN
[9] China modem label
[10] SIRIM label

For some models, you need to apply one or two FCC labels, [7] or [8]. 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 to the following figure:
