How to open the PSU cage on a 1571 disk drive?

Recommended Posts

I've been troubleshooting a 1571 drive for a while now and I've pretty much exhausted everything on the mainboard. I'd like to work on the PSU, but it's wrapped in a metal cage and I don't see how it opens, short of cutting it apart.


Does anyone know how I can get into the power supply on my 1571 drive?

Well, I figured it out... There are two tabs that stick out from the cage. If you tap the tabs back through the slots the cage will slide apart in two pieces. It was pretty simple once I realized where the seam in the cage was.
