Step 6
Pull the drive out - it's a fairly tight fit. At the bottom of the hole are two rubber segments where the drive is usually seated. Unfortunately these are custom shaped to match the original hard drive shape exactly - and won't seat the new replacement drive going in which has a chunkier profile. The two rubber segments have to come out for trimming, and then placed back inside which is all quite fiddly but doable using a long thin wooden implement, such as a chopstick, to fish them out, and then prod them back into place. Confirm that the trimmed segments are both located back in the correct position at the bottom of the drive bay before proceeding.

Tirez le lecteur - c'est un ajustement assez serré. Au bas du trou se trouvent deux segments en caoutchouc où le disque est habituellement posé. Malheureusement, ce sont des formes personnalisées pour correspondre exactement à la forme du disque dur d'origine et ne seront les mêmes dans le nouveau disque dans lequel il a un profil différent.

Les deux segments de caoutchouc doivent être découpés, puis placés à l'intérieur, ce qui est assez délicat, mais faisable à l'aide d'un long outil en bois mince, comme un baguette, pour les sortir et les remettre en place.

Vérifiez que les segments découpés sont à la fois situés dans la position correcte au bas de la baie du lecteur avant de continuer.
