  • See the procedures in the following table to remove and install filler panels for storage drives and PCIe cards.
    Filler Panel Type
    Removal Procedure
    Installation Procedure
    Storage drive (EF only)
    1. Locate the storage drive filler panel you want to remove from the server.

    2. To unlatch the storage drive filler panel, pull the release lever, and tilt the lever out into a fully opened position.

    3. To remove the filler panel from the slot, hold the opened release lever, and gently slide the filler panel toward you.

    1. Locate the vacant storage drive module slot in the server, and ensure that the release lever on the filler panel is fully opened.

    2. Slide the filler panel into the vacant slot by pressing the middle of the filler panel faceplate with your thumb or finger.

      The release lever goes in as it makes contact with the chassis. Do not slide the filler panel in all the way. Leave the filler panel out approximately 0.25 to 0.50 inch (6 to 12 mm) from the opening.

    3. Using your thumb or finger, press on the middle of the filler panel faceplate until the release lever engages with the chassis.

    4. Close the release lever until it clicks into place and is flush with the front of the server.

    2. To remove the PCIe slot filler panel, rotate the PCIe locking mechanism to an upright position, and lift and remove the PCIe slot filler panel from the location into which you intend to install the PCIe card.

    1. Remove the server top cover.

    2. To install the PCIe slot filler panel, press the PCIe filler panel into the vacant PCIe slot, and rotate the PCIe locking mechanism downward to secure the PCIe slot filler panel. You hear an audible click when the PCIe filler panel is secured into the slot.
