The next step is to pull
the PCB that the LED is attached to apart. This will give you an
easier time removing the bulb and soldering later on. Start off
by removing any ribbon cables that are attached to the main PCB.
Take your soldering iron and run it
underneath the LED leads and yank the bulb out. A few tugs and
it should pop right out. With the two wires, solder it onto the
leads from the LED. Keep in mind the anode and cathode leads
and it's orientation.
If you have trouble remembering which
lead goes where on the PCB, see if there are any indications.
Our drive has a + to denote the anode connection.
Take the other end of the wire that is
free and run it through the two holes. Dab some solder onto
the hole to seal it, see below where the screw driver is pointing
Replace the ribbon cable and the back
plate. Screw everything back together as before. We
positioned our LED and wire to the left side of the drive, since
that is where we want to position it on our case.
