Cannot find "caddy only" for RD240

I checked with my vendor before I purchased this RD240 if all the 8 bays came with the removable caddies, but of course it showed up with only one.  The tag on the caddy says




Foxconn 1021


However searching google on all these items comes up with nothing but dead ends and searching for RD240 parts lists only gives me results for drives with the caddy, but none alone.  Is there a part for just caddy only?


The closes thing I see to a caddy only reference is for the RD2200 on another post however the part 42R4131 picture is noticeably different from what I have so I am not sure if the latching mechanism is the same.

Re: Cannot find "caddy only" for RD240

call IBM parts at 800-388-7080 and select menu options 2, 1, and 1.   ask to order part number 46U3521.   it's $40 plus $13.50 shipping and tax.


you can also order it online here but i recommend calling to ask about current availability.


good luck!

Why is it so expensive?
