See Remove a PCIe Riser From PCIe Slot 1 or 2.
Remove the PCIe card from the PCIe riser.
Hold the riser in one hand and use your other hand to carefully pull
the PCIe card connector out of the riser.
Disconnect the rear bracket that is attached to the PCIe card from the
rear of the PCIe riser.
Place the PCIe card on an antistatic mat.
Whenever you remove a PCIe card, you should replace it with another PCIe
card or a PCIe filler panel. Installing PCIe filler panels in vacant PCIe
slots helps reduce the level of electromagnetic interference (EMI) emitted
by the server. See Remove and Install Filler Panels.
