New antenna board cover/insulating plastic , connector issue?

Block Image

I'm in the process of installing a second drive with my kit.

My Mac mini seems to have a piece of plastic covering the antenna connector on the wi-fi board that isn't shown in the guide. I can see the connector if I carefully lift up on the plastic. But I'm concerned about reseating the connector later on. Any issues or pointers?

Yes, I saw this too. I pushed aside the plastic tape and unclipped the antenna. It was a bit fiddly to put the antenna back but do-able. It was also very fiddly connecting the sata connectors but overall the trickiest bit was aligning the metal grill with the screw holes left and right. Required a bit of poking with the spudger around the edge of the grill while positioning the left and right screws.

Thanks I was worried I had done something wrong when the antenna plate wouldn't align the left/right tabs
