14.3 Removing the Crossbar Cables
This section describes the procedure for removing the crossbar cables. Enable the removal of the crossbar cables before attempting to remove them. For details, follow the procedure in "Chapter 7  Maintenance Flow." 
Caution - Before you handle any components, wear a wrist strap to ground any static electricity. If you perform this procedure without a wrist strap, individual components or the overall system may be damaged. For details, see "1.5  Precautions on Static Electricity."
  1. Remove the two crossbar cables from the SPARC M10-4S.
    Remove each crossbar cable by holding the tab (A in Figure 14-6 and Figure 14-7) of the cable and pulling it straight out in the direction of the arrow. At this time, do not hold the cable part when pulling out the crossbar cable. Pulling the cable part without the connector lock completely released may cause damage.
Caution - Pulling the cable part without the connector lock completely released may cause damage.
