IdeaCentre AIO 520-27IKL - Removing The Rear Cover

Hello,

 

I'm needing help in removing the rear cover of my machine, please? I've looked through other forum posts which has helped me find the PSREF for my machine - it is the F0D0000CUK model.

 

I have found the Hardware Maintenance manual produced by Lenovo (1041424905.pdf) which is quite precise and shows that I need to remove a screw after the optical drive has been removed.

 

But I do not have an optical drive - instead there is just a plastic cover (blanking plate). How do I remove that plastic cover with out breaking something? Or should I be doing something different?

 

Thanks,

Ray.

Hold up - I've just found the Parts Removal Video (https://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/solutions/ht505031?CID=ww:lenovosocial:20x9m6&Source=social_eservic...).

 

I'll check that out and see if I can't do what that shows.

Thanks, yes they helped. The videos make it look a lot easier than it really is but I got there in the end.

 

The optical disk blanking plate was a red herring; it is screwed on from the inside.
