Front Cover Removal

In order to make the Slide-Tool workable, please remove the front cover of the cd/dvd drive firstly. There is no need to open the console because it is "clipped" on from the outside.

Step 1 - Remove Screw
1. Turn on your PlayStation2 and press the eject button, then the tray comes out.
2. Let the tray stay out, and turn OFF the power on the backside of your PlayStation2 (rocker switch). This would make the console without power and keep the tray still out.
3. Turn around the console, and put it onto a table with good light for work.
4. Now, you can unscrew / remove the tiny screw on the back of the tray. If you feel it is stuck really tight, it should not be a problem. Get a good screwdriver.

Step 2 - Remove Cover
1. Use the smallest screwdriver you can find, or get a pin. The cover is "clipped" on in right and left side of the tray. Please be carefully!! The clips on the tray holding the cover can be broken easily. You just have to expand is about 0.5 millimeters in each side at a time, so that it comes right off.
2. When you see / find the clips, put the screwdriver or pin down and twist a little -- while pulling gently in the cover. It comes off.
Hints: If you are worried about it, you can heat up the plastic materials a little using a blow dryer so it will become more flexible. If it broke up, don't be frustrated - a little super glue can turn around the situation.

Step 3 - Replace Screw
1. It's time to replace the screw you removed before. Easily, reinstall it.
2. Now, the Slide-Tool is ready for use.
3. You will find the Front Cover can be reattached easily whenever you want!
