Inspiron 3668 remove filler bracket?

Postby victorgrant » Sun Aug 13, 2017 9:43 am

Working with a new Inspiron 3668 and trying to install expansion cards. Three slots are available.

There is a hardware wrinkle that is new to me. This box uses a card retention bracket that is attached to the chassis. it swings down and snaps in place--no screw as in the other Dell boxes I have used. Nice idea.

However, the card filler brackets (the metal strips you remove when you insert PCI cards) aren't "floating" the way they do on my other Dells. They are attached somehow, and I see no obvious way to remove them. Do I pry them up or push them in or do something else? The brackets have a cross-shaped cutout as if for a Phillips screwdriver.

The 3668 service manual is quite helpful for many topics, but neglects this one, unfortunately. I appreciate any advice to help me not break anything.

Thank You!!!

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
