If you want to change cells or install a cooling accessory, you may need to remove the DSC cell cover. Follow these steps:
Remove the lid(s). You can either manually remove the lids for the DSC Q10 or select the Control/Lid/Open function to raise the Autolid from the Q100 or Q1000 cell and cause it to move out of the way.
Remove the screws attaching the cell cover to the unit cover (circled in the figure below). Three screws are located on the side (Q1000) and one is located on the top. Retain the screws.
Pull the plug on the side of the unit cover out to remove it.
If your instrument has an Autosampler installed, lift up the cover to release the tabs (shown to the right) and pull the cover towards you to remove it fully, being careful not to damage the cell lids.
If you do not have an Autosampler, you will have to remove additional screws to release the cover. Then pull the cover towards you to remove it fully, being careful not to damage the cell lids.
