Required Tools

This procedure requires the following tools. Collect them before you begin.

  • Metric Hex wrench set

  • Permanent marker

  • Shears or knife

Installation

Complete the following steps in the order listed:

Install the Enclosure Panels

Tip! To install the enclosure panels, work from the left to the right of the machine.
To make it easier to install all components, don't install the side windows until later in the procedure.
Keep all screws one quarter-turn loose while installing the enclosure panels. This makes it easier to align the panels. Once you're done installing the enclosure, fully tighten all screws.

Install the Left Rear Panel

  1. Attach the column cover to the machine column with three M6 × 1.0 - 12 screws.

  2. Attach the left rear panel to the column cover with four M5 × 0.8 - 10 screws.

  3. Attach the left rear panel to the left chip pan with three M6 × 1.0 - 12 screws.
