Removing a CD drive from PC

  RKMonty 17:44 04 Dec 2004

Simple question.....need to replace a CD drive from PC but am having problems removing old one.
Old CD drive not secured by screws but on one side has a 'push in clip' that is visible that release that side,....on the other side have not got access to this clip so cannot release it. PC just opens from the sides only. Any ideas please ??.
The clip is about 1 inch back from the front of the CD front. Thanks once again all.
Simple question...probably simple answer !!.

You have probably got to take the front off your case,they clip on with a plastic clip top and bottom either side.You should be able to see these once your side panels are off.

The PC in question is an ADVENT model...

When you pull the front off the studs it is secured on it will give you access to the slide in clips on both sides of the optical drive. That is the way it was put in in the first place.
