    • Breathe deeply. Trying times are ahead, but we promise the lower case does come off.

    • Push the thin rims of the lower case surrounding the battery compartment in, bending them past the tabs, and then lift up to free that corner of the lower case.

  9. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Fan (1.33 GHz) Replacement: passo 9, immagine 1 di 1
    • There is a slot on the wall of the battery compartment that locks the lower case in place. Use a small flathead screwdriver to pry out the slot's lower rim and pull up on the lower case to free the slot from the tabs holding it.

    • Be careful not to break this clip!

  10. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Fan (1.33 GHz) Replacement: passo 10, immagine 1 di 1
    • Run a spudger along the seam between the lower case and upper case on the front of the computer to free the tabs locking the lower case. Pull up on the lower case and continue to use the spudger as necessary until you hear three distinct clicks.

  11. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Fan (1.33 GHz) Replacement: passo 11, immagine 1 di 1
    • Continue to run the spudger around the front, right corner. There are two tabs on the port side of the computer, one near the front corner and one near the sound-out port.

  12. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Fan (1.33 GHz) Replacement: passo 12, immagine 1 di 1
    • There are three tabs over the optical drive that must be released before the lower case can come off. Slide the spudger into the lower case above the optical drive and run it toward the back of the computer until you hear three distinct clicks.

  13. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Fan (1.33 GHz) Replacement: passo 13, immagine 1 di 1
    • Once the front and sides of the lower case are free, turn the computer so that the back is facing you and pull the lower case up and toward you until the back tabs pop free (it may be helpful to jiggle the case up and down).

  14. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Fan (1.33 GHz) Replacement: passo 14, immagine 1 di 1
    • Remove the small greasy springs with white plastic caps from either side of the battery contacts.

  15. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Fan (1.33 GHz) Replacement, Bottom Shield: passo 15, immagine 1 di 1
    • Remove the following 10 screws from the bottom shield:

    • Lift the bottom shield off.

  17. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Fan (1.33 GHz) Replacement, Fan (1.33 GHz): passo 17, immagine 1 di 1
    • Remove the 4 Phillips screws securing the fan to the metal framework.
