Unscrew the screws and set them aside for later use.
- Flip the laptop back over. Carefully remove the old Dell Inspiron 17 5748 dvd-rom dvd-ram drive, pulling gently yet firmly if you encounter resistance/ This will be the drive unplugging from the laptop's drive interface, so a small amount of resistance is not unusual.

- Slide the new Dell Inspiron 17 5748 DVD drive into the empty drive port. Make sure that you press it all the way in so that the drive will plug in to the drive interface. Once the drive is in completely, replace the screws to secure the drive.
