  2. Remove the super capacitor from the chassis.
    1. Grasp both ends of the cable connector, press in on the release latch, and then unplug the connector [1].

      The HBA super capacitor is secured to the air baffle by a recloseable fastener, which allows it to be easily removed and replaced.

    2. To separate the HBA super capacitor from the air baffle, place your finger under the rear of the super capacitor and lift up [2].

      Place the super capacitor on an antistatic mat.
