release handles until the bottom of the clamp releases from the clamp rail (2) (it should click when
it releases), and swing the clamp out from the back panel (3).
Remove all cables connected to the expansion card.
Push down on the expansion card retention clamp levers on the inside of the chassis to open the
retention clamp (1) as shown below.
If the card is in one of the slots with a latch, release the latch (2). (Note that there are two different
styles of latch.)
