Insert the fan unit into the fan holder/card guide. Align the fan with the label facing inward. If an

Some older fan holder/card guides are compatible with the metal mounting bracket for the
side access panel sensor. If the fan holder/card guide has enough clearance for the side
access panel sensor to remain on the metal mounting bracket, do nothing.
New fan holder/card guides are not compatible with the metal mounting bracket for the
side access panel sensor. If this is the case, you must move the sensor from the bracket to the
fan holder/card guide, as described below:
To move the side access panel sensor:
Remove the sensor and its metal mounting bracket (see
