Removing the battery

Use this information to remove the battery from the CMM.

Note: When a CMM is no longer needed, remove the battery and recycle or properly dispose of both the CMM and battery according to applicable local and national ordinances or regulations. (See the Environmental Notices and User Guide document on the Lenovo documentation CD for additional information.)
Before you remove the battery, complete the following steps:
  1. Read Safety and Installation guidelines.
  2. If the CMM is installed in a Flex System chassis, remove it (see Removing a Chassis Management Module 2 for instructions).

  1. Carefully lay the CMM on a flat, static-protective surface, with the release handle side up, and the bezel pointing toward you.
  2. Remove the screws on each side of the CMM cover, toward the rear of the CMM.
