Put panel on / 5. Before putting the panel back on check the four ‘latch points’ on the top and bottom of the chassis to make sure they aren’t bent inwards. Locate the left/right and bottom/top of ‘Side A’ and align the bottom of the panel and place it against the bottom of the computer chassis. Hold the panel at an angle and reattach the wires accordingly. 6. Keep the panel aligned to the bottom of the chassis about 2 centimeters off center, leaving a small gap between ‘Side A’ panel and the ‘Front’ panel. Lift the panel slightly to slide it into the ‘latch points’. Now place the panel up against the chassis and make sure it is straight.
