- #2 Phillips Screwdriver
- 5mm Hex Wrench
- 15mm Wrench
- Unplug the AC adapter from the machine and wait several minutes
- Using a #2 Phillips screwdriver, loosen the lowest screw in the shroud (Right Fan Cover) by 3 turns but do not remove it

- Carefully disconnect the Power Plug with Connector from the power cable
- Using a 15mm wrench, remove the securing ring from the outside of the shroud
- Remove the Power Plug with Connector from the inside of the shroud (Right Fan Cover)
