It's not quite as bad... What you do is :
Remove top cover, loosen the top screw holding the PSU ('backend of the
chassis) on each side, and remove the bottmo 2 screws on each side. Then
swing the CPU to the vertical position (That's one reason why the rack
slides have a tilt mechanism) and the PSU will swing away from the
backplane are. Unplug the 8 pin mate-n-lock, remove the 3 screws and
slide the regulator out.
The connecotrs are on the front of the regulators themselves, not the
connectors on the power distrbution PCB.
