    • Remove the four pillars from each corner.

    • The pillars should come out fairly easily.

    If the Cube has an Airport card installed, it must be removed. This can be accomplished by disconnecting its antenna, and pulling gently on the clear plastic tab on its end. The bracket it is contained in must be unlatched from the frame and rotated out of the way to get to the two optical drive mounting screws beneath it.

    There is a ribbed cooling plate attached to the hard drive that must be removed before step 7.

    There is no need to remove the four pillars. Skip step 4. In step 5, don't turn the Cube on it's side. The Airport slot swings out like a door, providing access to the IDE ribbon and power cables to complete step 6. Complete steps 6 and 7 while the cube is upright.
