    • Remove the cable from the plug and remove the wires from the two plastic hooks.

    • When removing the cable from the plug, pull on the plastic male connecter, not on the wires.

    • Remove the power supply unit.

    The left side of the PSU sits on two long metal prongs so you may need to pull a little to get it lose but you should be able to pull the whole unit in an upward motion

I am replacing the optical drive in my console. But didn't note where the drive ribbon was positioned!? Every video I have found, they just pop right in...my original and replacement drives, have larger receptacles than the ribbon it self. There are at least 5 pins, that don't have (potentially) anything connecting them, to the ribbon. I don't want to randomly place the ribbon in one of the possible (7?) positions and fry something in the process...so where do I connect the smaller ribbon?!
