    • Re-orient your iMac so it sits upright on the stand.

    • Insert a plastic card up into the corner of the air vent slot near the top of the rear case.

    • Push the card toward the top of the iMac to release the front bezel latch.

    • Pull the front bezel away from the rear case.

    • Repeat this process for the other side of the front bezel.

    • It may be necessary to apply several layers of duct tape to the top of the access card to aid in releasing the latches. Or use two cards for the additional thickness.

    • If the bezel refuses to release, try lifting the lower edge of the front bezel slightly away from the rear case (detailed in the next few steps) and repeat the latch release process.

    • During reassembly, it is helpful to use several small strips of tape to hold the EMI shielding along the left and right edges of the display footprint out of the way before lowering the display into the rear case of your iMac.

  12. iMac Intel 20" EMC 2105 and 2118 Power Supply Replacement: 12 단계, 이미지 1/2 iMac Intel 20" EMC 2105 and 2118 Power Supply Replacement: 12 단계, 이미지 2/2
    • Allow the lower EMI shield to hang down from the display.

    • Remove the four 7.5 mm T10 Torx screws securing the display to the rear case.

    • The screws are recessed, so a thin magnetic screwdriver aids in removal. Most bit drivers are too short to reach these screws.

  13. iMac Intel 20" EMC 2105 and 2118 Power Supply Replacement: 13 단계, 이미지 1/1
    • Lift the lower edge of the display and rotate it toward the top edge of your iMac.

This guide was awesome. The iMac power supply replacement is a lot of work/steps but fixed an intermittent power supply problem for less than a $100 US dollars.

Great guide! Powered down computer prior to vacation and came back to find it non-operative. This guide, about 90 minutes, and a $50 replacement power supply off of ebay and it is back up and running. This is a secondary computer we don't use much any more, but I hated to throw it out when it was still working for what we were using it for. Thanks so much!
