Periodically, it will be necessary to exchange Head Disk Assemblies because of system operational requirements. Also,
it is absolutely essential that the HDA be removed from the disk unit prior to installing, removing, or moving the disk unit.
The text to follow provides an illustrated step-by-step procedure for removing and installing the HDA. See illustration on
DO NOT remove the HDA or cabling with the units power on. Position PWR ON/PWR
OFF switch to PWR OFF first.
Great care must be exercised by the Operator when handling the HDA. Avoid subjecting
the HDA to bumping, rough handling, or dropping. Shocks due to improper handling can
cause the heads to score the disk surfaces or crack the heads; a drop of one-half inch
onto a hard surface may cause a head crash.
