How do I open the case on my Dimension 4600?

  • It seems that  the case is riveted to the chasis of my Dimension 4600. How do I open the case? I want to install a firewire card.
  • If there are screws present take them off first. Then slide the cover and it should open. While holding a quick release button.


  • The only screws on the back are the ones that hold the power supply to the chasis. Does the case cover slide off to the front or rear?
  • Thanks hennesynalert,

    I didn't realize that only 1 side slides off.

  • No problem. The 4600 case is not a clam shell just like my 8300. It is actually a quick release slide cover.
