    • Put the unit upside down and take off the rubber bottom cover. It is better to start at a corner.

    • Warm the lid to take it off. There is a lot of glue all over the surface. Be patient and careful.

    The rubber tears real easy with age so carefully work your way inwards from each corner.

I replaced a dead drive in about 30 mins following these instructions. The steps are clear, straight forward and the photos were extremely helpful. Many thanks as I now have a renovated AirPort Time Capsule.

I just replaced the 2 TB WDC Green with a WD Red Pro 4 TB with this guide in less than 30 min. Except for the fan cable it was a cake walk.

Successfully upgraded my A1409 to a Western Digital - WD100PURZ - 5400 RPM Class SATA 6 Gb/s 256MB Cache 3.5. There are two additional steps: (a), there is a rubber strip around the original drive that reduces noise and protects the drive, gently remove from the original drive and place on the new drive; (b) once the rubber strip is on the drive, it is hard to get into place, angle the drive towards the connector side, and press in.

Hola. Reemplacé el disco con toda facilidad pero, desgraciadamente, la Utilidad AirPort no lo está reconociendo ni consigue borrarlo para activarlo. El HD nuevo es un WD Red de 10 TB. Si alguien puede ayudarme a resolver el problema, agradezco mucho.
