I finally found a web site that is devoted to the unofficial support of IBM Aptiva computers. http://home.ptd.net/~don5408 This site had graphics showing what to push in what direction to get the thing open.

Ned to replace cpu fan.


I think that particular model has the fan mounted in the back of the case just below the power supply. It has a duct that goes from the fan to the processsor. Remove case cover and remove the duct by pressing the 2 tabs on the top of the duct and rolling it back and out. Unplug the fan cable from the mainboard . Make sure you remember the connector as you will have to plug the new fan cable back in. Remove the screws that hold the fan to the case and remove the old fan. Install the new fan, plug in the cable and if your computer is dusty on the inside blow it out with some canned air . Re-install duct by sliding tab at bottom in first then pull up to lock in top tabs. Replace case cover and she's done.
