    • Use a heat gun or hair dryer to heat the rubber base, which softens the adhesive holding it on.

    • Starting in a corner, carefully lift the rubber base to prevent tearing. You can use a guitar pick or a small, plastic ruler to help separate the rubber from the metal.

    • Take your time to prevent tearing the adhesive. Ensure that you don't overheat the device.

    • If you tear some of the adhesive, don't worry. The existing adhesive is more than enough to allow the rubber base to stick back onto the unit during reassembly.

    • During reassembly, you can apply heat to the rubber base. This will enable the adhesive to flow and form a better bond with the device's metal casing.

    Once the rubber base is separated from the device, remove the 8 Phillips PH00 screws that attach the metal bottom of the case to the plastic top of the case. Use the Philiips #00 Screwdriver.

    Position the rear side of the device (the side with Ethernet connectors) so that it is facing you. Lift up the left side of the metal plate and slowly flip it over the right edge of the device.

    • Lift up the left side of the metal plate and slowly flip it over the right edge of the device.

    • To prevent damage, do not lift the metal plate straight up or use force. As shown in the second picture, the fan is attached to the metal plate and connected to the logic board next to the power connector.

    • Since many people have had serious problems with the fan power connnector breaking, it is advisable to NOT try to disconnect the fan power connector. Be VERY careful with this connector. It is extremely fragile. If you absolutely have to disconnect the fan from the logic board, VERY carefully use a spudger or tweezers to do so.

I accidentally edited this page, instead of the fan. Could anyone tell me how to reverse that/reverse it for me? Thanks!

Just un-edit the page to what it used to be.

Reid Fleishman -

must I put back on the rubber bottom or can I leave it off for maximum airflow?

Benjamin Holmstedt - Contestar

My thought exactly. I left it off and put small felt pads on each corner for noise reduction AND for better airflow.
