Mac mini Model A1347 hard drive replacement

"Completing this guide requires rubber cement to stick the old thermal sensors to your new hard drive." Is this on the reverse of step 21/20?

Thanks, I've just seen that iFixit have a new kit for replacing the DVD drive. So I might check that out first.

Yes, it'd be on step 21 of the hard drive replacement guide. The sentence about adding rubber cement in the introduction was added by a user on the site. Usually if you don't handle the thermal sensor or get it dirty, the old adhesive should be enough to hold it onto your new hard drive. Ideally you'd want to use some double-stick thermal tape to attach it, but i think the combination of the tape covering the sensor and some rubber cement should hold it on fine.
