Is there a guide for replacing the logic board?

If there is a guide for replacing the logic board on the PowerMac G5 (model A1047), I don't see it. Has one been made?

I don't know what that is, but it's not an A1047 model. There is a long metal plate that divides the fans and processors area from the PCIe slots that spans the length of the machine, which holds the electrical connector for the main fan assembly. That dinky little piece of metal that he removes in the first minute is not it. Or perhaps the video doesn't include the critical step I'm looking for?

The problem is that the long metal plate divider has screws threaded into it from the backside of the logic board. It can be seen in this right under the graphics card. Anyone know how to get this metal plate divider out? Or what comes out first? I hope we don't have to take the left side cover off! That would be so PC-ish!

Thanks everybody.
