  3. Grasp the handle and slide the cover approximately 1/2 inch to the rear.
  4. Rotate the cover out and lift off.

  6. While applying pressure to the top of the bezel, release each of the three tabs starting with the tabs on the top.
  7. Rotate the left side of the bezel away from the chassis until the hinge tabs are free.
