Removing PCI slot covers

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I’m planning on building a PC in an old Acer Aspire AM1201-E1621A case, but I’m not sure how to get the PCI slot covers off. Can someone please give their ideas?

If those don't have screws, then you might need to bend it back and forth to break the small tabs that hold the cover in place.

I’m not sure if they have screws or not. The plastic cover is making it impossible to see the top of the covers.

Okay then. I’ve tried taking it off, but I’m not sure exactly how to do it. Any thoughts?

Is this a tab of sorts?

Is there anything that could help at the back of the case?

Nothing at the back, as far as I can tell. The black lip could be a tab, but I’m not sure which way to pull it off if it is
