8.3 Removing a PCI Express Card
This section describes the procedure for removing a PCIe card. For reduction, use the same procedure.
For expansion, remove a PCIe card filler unit, rather than a PCIe card itself.
Enable removal of the PCIe card before attempting to remove it. For details, see "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 "1.4 Notes Regarding Static Electricity."
