Remove Media Bay - Add Third Hard Drive to M9040N

Does anyone have a link to instructions on how to remove the media bay in a M9040N for the purpose of adding a third hard drive?

I know there is one somewhere, but I can't find it here or on google.

Also, will the stock power supply handle a third hard drive (1 TB)? And are there an extra SATA connector and power cord to hook it to?

Hard drives are so cheap now I can't see a reason not to add another one.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks Rich, but unfortunately, the video and website is hard to decipher.

Should a third hard drive go in the smaller media drive in the middle of the case? It doesn't seem that there's room in the regular hard drive bay.

I was really hoping to hear from someone who's added a third drive.

I'm especially interested to learn about available SATA connectors and power.
