Step 1: Open the Left Cover

To initiate the second bias transfer roller replacement, start by opening the left cover of your Xerox VersaLink C7030. Locate the gray latch on the left side cover and push it up to reveal the internals.

Step 2: Remove the Old BTR

With the left cover open, you'll find the second BTR nestled on the left side cover. Identify the two orange squares on each end of the BTR. Place your thumbs on the black plastic near the orange squares while simultaneously placing your index fingers on the other side of the black clip and squeezing. By doing this, you'll unlatch both ends of the BTR. Pull the old BTR straight up and out of the machine.

Step 3: Align and Insert the New BTR

The new BTR has a small carrot-shaped protrusion on its plastic, and a corresponding carrot opening is present on the housing where the BTR goes. Align these carrots to ensure the correct orientation. Drop the BTR into place while holding it exactly as you removed the old one. Once aligned, give it a firm push to secure it in its position.

Now that the new BTR is securely in place, close the left side cover. Ensure that both the front and rear latches properly latch into place. This step ensures that the BTR is securely housed within the printer.
