After I cleaned up my Mac keyboard. I'm very surprised to know the fact that so much dirt was hidden inside it. When I glazed to my Mac G5, I start to imagine how dirty it will be. Why not I open it? So I got into the fighting processes against dirts inside my Mac G5
I'll be blamed to death by my brother, who presents me this G5, if I don't take good care of my G5. Even a single scratch on it will become my nightmare.
And frankly, my G5 is so heavy that needs my skinny muscle to contracts more than necessary.
This is a piece of cake for me. I just need to pull up the longer part and push down the shorter part. So fun that I repeat this step again, again and again. Then I can easily strip the chasing out of my G5.
Wow, it looks so tidy yet so dirty.
The hidden hint is written behind the chasing of G5. I assume this as how to attach additional memory to G5 (maybe I'm wrong, but I hope I'm not).
Most part of G5 is made of aluminum, except this plastic cover.
Fans will be the dirtiest part compare with others part as they suck in cool air as well as dust. There will be four fans scattered inside G5 but I can only remove 2 and half for my current record. I hope you can give any hints on how to pull out all of four fans.
I aim for the second fan. Touch here and there, and I finally realize that the second fan is being held by this small part. In conclusion, I have to unlock this part first.
Can you see the little hole inside snapshot above? There is where the screw buried. And there is another hole at the opposite side of this thing. Need to use screwdriver here and a high confidence not to thrust on other vulnerable part. If you accidently thrust and make a small hole on the board, say bye-bye to your G5.
After that, pull it carefully towards you then move it up and out of your inner G5.
Nothing can block my desire to pull you out, Mr. Fan…
Pull it outside (until the point it cannot be moved anymore), tilt it a bit and pull again to the tilting direction, this will successfully and safely draw this thing out of G5.
Let's see our progress until now.
Look closely to backside of your G5. 9 tiny screws will be spotted cling perfectly around the two circles. Pull them out with your ability to control screwdriver or at least you can have somebody to control it for you (even with force?!).
And smile.. as you will know that the fan (yeah, those two circles is the back part of the third fan) can be freely moved, except out of your G5. It's such a pity that it's connected by short-black-little cable, i.e. constrained.
Now you know what I mean by halfway; I can't completely clean the part
After all my efforts to screw out of 9 screws, I got this 8-Shaped Aluminium Foil unattached.
And the towel I used to clean it…
Oh yeah, if you have better idea how to clean up G5, would you mind let me now?
