I can help you in this matter but i need the entire model number.

here is an example ...CF-Y7BWAYZJM

== Update ==

The shield unscrews from the external HDD cover your holding when you remove the hard drive, this is mostly a sensor for moisture and and emi shield. gently remove the tape and unscrew the metal cover. make sure not to damage the foam pads. if you need replacement parts please include the model number and ill be able to get you toe oem part number. I own a cf-18 and looking through all my service manuals they all have pretty much the same outer circuit (the yellow tape looking circuit.) over the hard drive. ive sucessfully upgraded my HDD with a western digital just make sure the G-rating is high enough on the replacement HDD. there is a HDD cover plate on the bottom and a complete teardown is not required for this upgrade.

There should be a panel on the bottom that's held i with screws. Simply remove the screws and you'll have access. If not, might have to dig into the machine the long way...
