Step Lines

[* black] Lift the inner edge of the optical drive and maneuver its connector past the GPU frame attached to the logic board.
[* black] Carefully pull the optical drive off its mounting pins on the right side of the outer case to gain clearance for disconnecting the optical drive cable.
[* black] Allow the optical drive to hang down as you de-route the optical drive thermal sensor connector from behind the GPU heat sink.
[* icon_note] If you are removing the optical drive just to get access to the fan, de-routing the optical drive thermal sensor connector is not neccessary, as there is enough slack to remove the fan with the optical drive cables still connected.
