Hello MacRumors,

Would someone know how to remove the front metal door of a PowerMac G5. The current is damaged and I am replacing the door, so how do I get it out.

Does someone have pictures?

Thanks and keep on PowerPCing!

Sincerely,
Altemose

What front metal door do you mean? There is only the side metal door and on the front the only moving part is the small metal slit for the ODD.

The front optical slit that moves when the ODD opens!

Start by taking out the optical drive. I don't know where to go next, and I can't remember the assembly of the door from taking apart my G5s, but you might be able to see better.
