XPS 9100: how to access right-side drive bay mounting screws?

Jump to solution

Working on an unrelated problem, I noticed that last year, my trusty PC tech mounted a new SSD using a screw on the left _and_ right side of the drive bay.

If I need to remove this drive later on, how on Earth do I access the screws on the right side? Thanks.

Edit: Turns out the SSD was screwed to its caddy on the right side, but the caddy wasn't screwed to the right side of the PC's drive bay, only the left. Nevermind. (@SpeedStep, thanks for the reply.)

You don't  for the upper bays they are shoulder screws.  You remove the bezel then press slider down and slide the drive out.  For the drive cage it also has slots for shoulder screws.
