How do you access the Lenovo Y900 Gaming Desktop front dust filter ?

2017-03-24, 10:58 AM

Hello,

 

I have a mesage that pops up every now and again about cleaning the dust filters on my Y900 gaming desktop. I can do the one at the back of the box at the bottom no worries but how do I get access to the one inside the front panel at the frobnt of the box ?

 

I can open and get inside the side of the box by using that lever and panel to push down at the top of the back of the box, but how do I open up and get inside the front of the box to clean outt hat dust filter.

Any help is appreciated.

 

Cheers,

 

Chris

I have included a link below to a Lenovo Training Video series.  One part of the series details how to remove the front filter.  This video demonstration should resolve the issue you are having in cleaning the front filter.

Hi majestic,

 

I have had a look at the link you provided but am still having difficulty in working out how to actually take the front of the box off and clean the filter..

 

Do you know of any other step by step videos I could look at ?

 

Cheers,

 

Chris

Unfortunately that is the only video that I'm aware of from Lenovo.  

 

I assume that when you state the "front of the box,"  you are referring to the front bezel?   If so, the method of removing the front bezel on your model is a common to a variety of  desktops.  Some desktops require that you press the release tabs and others, like yours, require you to lift up on them.  According to the video, once you pull up on the 3 tabs to release that side of the cover it will then swing out of the way.  Sometimes it helps starting at one end and release the tabs one at a time.  After you release a tab, pull the bezel out slightly to keep it from re-latching while you release another tab.  I see in the video that the technician is using his thumbs to put pressure on the bezel to keep in away from the computer's chassis and re-latching while he is releasing the next tab.
