Installation and assembly Now it was time to get to grips with the Asus Vento 3600 for real. We fished out a test motherboard and some drives and got to work installing the components into the ASUS case.
The side panel ships secured by a single screw which needs to be removed before you can use the side swivel handle to open the case. Once this was removed, turning the handle clockwise unlatches the side panel, allowing it to be pulled away. The swivel handle operates very smoothly and neatly, and adds immeasurably to the whole space-age feel of the case. The spacious interior allows plenty of room for all ATX motherboards. Thanks to the extra height of the case, the top two 5.25 inch external drive bays are above the plane of the motherboard, so even if you have a full size board, you can mount at least two CD drives without worrying about them interfering with the board.
The backplane of the case sports built-in risers for most ATX motherboards, though additional risers are included if your board needs more or different connections. Installing the motherboard was straightforward as we'd expected
One thing we noticed and appreciated at this point was the way that ASUS had rounded most of the steel edges inside the case. Having worked in computer stores, I appreciate any attempt to protect our tender hands from the pain of sharp steel 'case cuts'.
The expansion slot covers are secured by green plastic locking tabs which need to be levered open and removed from the case. The metal covers can then be easily removed and PCI, AGP or PCI Express cards installed. The tabs can then be returned to their places, locking the expansion cards in place.

1999 OLDS CUTLASS MUST REMOVE DRIVER SIDE REAR DOOR PANAL TO REMOVE REPAIER /REPLACE POWER WINDOE REGULATOR


Most door panels are held in place by spring type retainers which snap into holes in the metal part of the door they are usually tent shaped spring clips. Typically a thin tool like a putty knife can be used to unsnap the clip from the door. At the top of the panel is typically a curved piece of metal or plastic that has to be removed before the top edge of the panel can be released. Take a gentle hand to keep from breaking any plastic parts.

Need to remove front panel located under the filter cover


Press around the panel edges while pulling back. There are probably plastic clip locks that need to be depressed to unlock. Flex carefully, taking care not to break the plastic cover.

Show me how to pull the control panel out


The control panel is fixed to the stainless steel inner panel. You will need either a phillips or a T20 torx screwdriver depending on what fixing have been used. You will need to take out all the screws which line up with the control panel plastics. There is usually one in the left and right sided at the top of the inner frame also. The screw by the door lock along the top will have to come off if it has one. Looking at this unit it is an older design so it should do.

Now sometimes you will need to loosen off the screws holding the front decor panel a bit, I normally loosen the top and middle ones enough to free up the control panel a bit to jiggle it out of position. It is easier to take this decor right off and get the control panel out but takes longer.

Now if you have the unit I think you do the plastics on the control module will be quite brittle so be careful not break it if you need to check it for some reason. There are a few plastic clips around the module which clip it into the metal frame. The metal frame clips into the display fasia. You should see the clips round the edge of the metal frame which are tricky to get off sometimes. Once you have the display plastics separated, then you can un clip the module from the metal frame. As I said be careful especially of the buttons.

Also be careful not to pull on the cables to much if removing witht he decor panel still on the unit. The edge of the metal may cut into the wires.

As with any work on electrical equipment, please stay safe and make sure the unit is unplugged.

How does one remove the right side panel from a Gateway DX4840-11e Desktop?


May not be exact, just posting info I know;

If memory serves you remove the Front Panel. This allows access to tab,s that are depressed, and allows the removal of the Right/Upper metal part of the case, (After removing rear Philips screws, 'natch)

I also seem to remember that there are plastic 'Tabs' on the top plastic cover, that protrude down into the top metal frame of the computer case. Once the wires are disconnected, the tabs are depressed, and this allows the plastic top to slide off.

Direction? Memory fading. Can't remember if you slide to the Front, or Rear. Looking at those plastic tabs should reveal this.

Also cannot remember if the plastic Top needs to be removed first, THEN the 'fairing'.

Awaiting your reply. Post back in a Comment.
Perhaps together, as you work on disassembling the case, we can solve this problem.
Remove the Front Panel, then tell me what you see.

Is it possible to remove the top optical drive bay's front panel and fit the optical drive without it?


The front panel drive panel needs to be removed so you can install an optical drive. There may be a metal panel behind the plastic front panel, if so this will need to be removed so the optical drive can be inserted into the drive bay.

Hi Can any advise how i add a new belt to a hotpoint 9324 dryer ? Is it from the from or rear & if possible the configeration how the belt goes around the pulleys at the bottom. Thanks Graeme



To replace belt or heater element you must remove the front panel complete with door.
Screws are different sizes in different places so note where they belong as you remove them.

1. Remove 2 screws at rear top which go through the brackets holding the top panel, slide back the top panel a little and lift it off.

2. Pull off the rotary timer knob and remove 2 screws beneath.

3. This is the tricky bit! Remove the the plastic panel which covers the switches etc.. This panel has 5 plastic fingers which secure it to the metal plate behind, locate the ends of the fingers where they pass through the metal plate. Using a metal rod or punch and a hammer, tap the ends of the fingers to push them back through the holes easing each in turn a little at a time to avoid distorting the plastic unduly.

4. Open the door and remove the 4 screws then remove 3 screws at the top and 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel. Lift and ease forward the front panel, unhook the door catch release wire, pull off the electrical connectors and put the front panel aside.

5. Lay the machine on its back and remove 1 screw holding the element housing to the top plate and pull off the electrical connectors.

6. Fit the belt around the drum, through the idler pulleys and over the motor spindle.

7. Put it all back together.

5 yr old top load washer needs new lid switch; bought the part -- now what?


Check the rear of side plastic panels, they have a screw that holds it in place. (remove them).
Pull control panel towards you and fold it backwards carefully so you don't brake the plastic hinges.
Remove the metal brackets that keep the top panel secured on cabinet and slide top panel off about an inch so you can lift and exposed lid switch - remove old lid switch and assemple everything you removed the way it was.
GOOD LUCK!!

What is the procedure to replace the ignition switch on a 2000 dodge caravan?


The top and bottom plastic steering column covers need to be removed with a Torx screwdriver. The tilt lever, if it exists, must be unscrewed to remove them. Then, remove the tamper-proof Torx screws to remove the entire plastic ignition switch assembly, including key cylinder. The metal cylinder part can now be removed from the ignition switch. If you need to remove the internal keyed part from the cylinder, the key must be in a specific position, and a hammer must be used at a specific spot. Most locksmiths have access to this specific procedure, and/or will do it for $10 or so. Otherwise you can simply replace the cylinder, but that means the key will be different than the doors.

Replacing the Drive Belt


I am not an expert but I do have a Hotpoint 9334 Tumble Dryer which I guess is similar to the 9314.
