That’s a shame, because the IIcx was designed for ease of construction. Apple demonstrated assembling one from part in under two minutes, if I recall correctly.
You can use any standard 3.5″ half-height or third-height SCSI hard drive in these computers.
Remove the lid. There are two tabs at the back of the lid. Pull up on them, which releases the lid.
Locate the hard drive. It’s hard to miss.
Locate the metal tabs on each side of the hard drive. Grab it with your thumb and middle finger (or whatever feels most comfortable for you).
Lift up the sled holding the hard drive. Disconnect the power and SCSI cables.
Turn the sled over. You’ll see 4 screws holding the drive in place. Remove them and the drive will come free.
Attach your new drive to the sled. Connect the SCSI and power cables. Clip the sled back into place.
Put the lid back on your Mac.
That’s all there is to it.
