I decided to put together a little walk through as to what i did about these doors (flaps) being loose and squeaking. This is a very easy and cheap fix (.20) and can be done within a few minutes.

It works very well at keeping the flaps open at any position you want them and also stops the squeeking. I am not sure if anyone else came up with this idea before but here we go. Also i included pictures as links so dial up users would'nt have trouble viewing this thread.

1) You will need two small rubber (or nylon) washers. I used rubber 5/32x3/8x1/16.

2) Locate the top bracket and remove the two screws and bracket. You only need to remove the top bracket on each side to get this done.

3) Slide the flap out a little and lift up to remove the flap. Locate the bottom peg on the bottom bracket and slide a rubber washer all the way on.

4) Replace the flap and top bracket and repeat with the other side. There you have it! A very cheap and easy fix that works very well and you cannot even tell a mod has been done. Enjoy!

Thanks, lol. It did'nt take a major brain storm to figure this out and i am sure others must have thought of this already.

I just hear of so many people complaining about the doors (flaps) being loose and what not then decide to take them off. I personally like the doors as they do somewhat look ok and protect the front of the case along with the drives if you decide to slide your chair into the front of the case by accident.

Just a simple idea for those who like the doors and want to keep them on.

Yeah modding is very addictive esp when you see what other people have done with theirs and it opens up new ideas to ponder....
