Slightly push the right and left release latches; then, lift the air baffle out of the node.
For proper cooling and airflow, replace the air baffle before you turn on the node. Operating the node with the air baffle removed might damage node components.

If you are instructed to return the component or optional device, follow all packaging instructions, and use any packaging materials for shipping that are supplied to you.
