  3. Remove the two 3.2 mm screws.
    • Remove the two 3.2 mm screws.

    • These screws are angled toward the outer case and are also very small. Use a sharp screwdriver and be careful not to strip the screws.

  4. Insert an iPod opening tool between the outer case and the metal hold switch plate near the top of the screen .
    • Insert an iPod opening tool between the outer case and the metal hold switch plate near the top of the screen .

    • While slightly lifting up on the iPod opening tool, pull the hold switch plate out of the iPod.

    • The hold switch plate is still attached to iPod by a very thin, very fragile ribbon cable. Be careful not to break it.

    My ribbon broke.

    I see that on the pictures further down, you removed the covering plate, which I would suggest to do, as it'll put less weight on the ribbon.

    Luckily, we can find spare ones. In fact it doesn't sell alone, it's with the earphones jack.

  5. The glass panel is held in place by adhesive on all four sides. In the following steps, work carefully to avoid cracking the glass. Insert an iPod opening tool between the display and the glass panel at the top of the device.
    • The glass panel is held in place by adhesive on all four sides. In the following steps, work carefully to avoid cracking the glass.

    • Insert an iPod opening tool between the display and the glass panel at the top of the device.

    • Rotate the iPod opening tool towards the rear of the device, slightly lifting the top of the glass out of the outer case.

    • The glass panel does not raise very far. Do not attempt to completely remove the panel yet, or you are likely to break the display screen.

    I would recommend using a heat gun.

    raul mald - 回复

    At this point, I find it helps to separate the lock switch from the top metal casting. You then have just the switch dangling on the fragile ribbon cable. Much less likely to snag or break the ribbon. Just loosen (Don't remove completely) the two Phillips screws. The heavy clunky casting bit can be removed.

    You can remove this lens with virtually zero risk to the LCD underneath:

    Get a couple guitar picks or spudgers ready, and another old spudger. Using a hot glue gun, glue the old spudger into the very middle of the lens. Let the glue cool completely.

    Using a heat gun pointing up from the bottom, heat the 3 edges of the shell around the top and sides of the lens. Avoid getting heat on the lens or hot glue as it will soften.

    Using the spudger as a handle, pull up on the lens to get the top edge started and get your guitar picks/spudgers under the sides at the top of the lens.

    Complete removal as above.

    Using a spudger/guitar pick, start to peel an edge of the hot glue loose to remove old spudger from lens; then clean any residue with alcohol.

    After destroying one iPod, I learned from my mistakes. Heating it with a hair dryer to loosen the adhesive helped a lot. You need to get the tool between the glass and the lcd display; be very careful not to put pressure on the display!

  6. While lifting the screen up with one iPod opening tool, insert a second iPod opening tool in between the outer case and the top left edge of the glass panel.
    • While lifting the screen up with one iPod opening tool, insert a second iPod opening tool in between the outer case and the top left edge of the glass panel.

    • Remove the first iPod opening tool from between the glass and LCD in the top of the device.

    The iPod I repared had a cracked screen. Caution here because it doesn't pop out that easily. I had to apply some force on the plastic opening tool while using another tool to take out the shards (who are glued to the side).

    • Lifting the glass from the side nearest the top of the iPod, remove the glass panel from the Nano.

    It might be a good idea to remove all the adhesive from the screen before trying to slide the internals out. I had a nightmare trying to get mine out, ended up cutting my thumb and finger from holding onto the edges of the screen too tight trying to wiggle it out. And then to top it off, I broke the hold switch ribbon cable too. I don’t know how much the screen glue vs the battery glue was responsible for making it difficult to remove. Also when sliding it out, be careful the lip on the lower edge of the button hole doesn’t snag on the thin steel frame around the screen.

    On the Nano I worked on I had to do steps 12-14 before step 10 because the metal plate on the bottom is one of the two things holding the click wheel in place.

    ethan - 回复

    You MUST remove the bottom plate BEFORE forcing of the wheel or you WILL tare it apart as there is a lug on the bottom plate that holds the wheel in place ( wish I had known this before I damaged mine)

    also do not lose the very small spring that is under the wheel (I DID )

    +1. There is a tiny piece of plastic containing a little spring just under the wheel. Remove thoses parts before extracting the main board or you will probably loose them.

    • Unscrew three screws from the bottom of the iPod:

    • Two 4.4 mm angled Phillips screws

    • One 5.4 mm Phillips screw.

    • These screws may not come out on their own, so be sure not to lose them when removing the retainer.

    • Use a plastic opening tool to pry the metal retainer out from the bottom of the iPod and remove it.

    A flathead screwdriver or even a tooth pick will do better in this step.

    • Do not try to completely remove the click wheel yet, as it is still held in place by a ribbon cable.

    Use extreme care when inserting the metal plunger to lift up the click wheel. I ended up damaging one of the sensor pads and then needed to order a new click wheel circuit. Not very expensive to replace but I had not intended to replace this item and so my finished repair was delayed.

    also, like someone mentioned below, be careful of the small plastic piece and tiny spring that will fall out after you remove the click wheel.

    In the second photo where you can see under the click wheel, just above the square black piece with the apple on it is a black rectangle with a hole in the center. There will be a spring in the hole. Remove the spring and the black piece it is in and set aside or they will fall out and get lost.

  16. Use a heat gun to soften the adhesive underneath the camera/microphone cover. Pry the camera/microphone cover off the case with a metal spudger and remove it. It is extremely difficult, if not impossible, to avoid damaging the iPod case near the camera. While this will not affect the iPod's functionality, it will hurt its cosmetic appearance.

    • It is extremely difficult, if not impossible, to avoid damaging the iPod case near the camera. While this will not affect the iPod's functionality, it will hurt its cosmetic appearance.

    • You can try this alternative method for removing the cover:

    • Use a hot glue gun to apply a bead of glue across the cover.

    • Move the nozzle in the glue for 20 seconds to heat the lens adhesive holding the lens in place.

    • Press a spudger into the hot glue and hold it in place until the glue cools and hardens.

    • Pull on the spudger with firm steady force, while using a fingernail to pry on the cover edge.

    Use a heatgun/hairdryer for a very long time and use a cutter knife and pry continuously only from the right bottom corner (near the camera lens). If you don't get it open use the heatgun once more.

    Peter Johansson - 回复

    Alternatively use a fabric bag filled with chick peas, put it in a microwave for 4 mn at power 600w and leave it to rest on the iPod 10 / 15 mn. It does the same job. I also use a fresh stanley knife blade (mind your fingers) the blade is very slim and is therefore easier to wedge between the casing and the cover.

    victoriahenri - 回复

    You can remove this lens with zero damage to case or lens:

    Using a hot glue gun, apply a bead of glue across the entire lens but not on the body of the iPod. Move the nozzle back and forth in the glue for about 20 seconds; this keeps the glue hot and heats up the Apple adhesive on the other side.

    Quickly jam an old spudger into the hot glue and hold it until the glue starts to harden; this will happen quickly. Gripping the spudger and digging into the glue over the spudger with the fingernail of your forefinger, pull straight up evenly but firmly. The lens will release pretty easily if you time it right; otherwise it will pop if it has gotten cold.

    I’ve done a dozen of these this way successfully.

    have to be careful because after removing the click wheel, when you turn it upside down, the are pieces that fall down. I lost one that fall in my carpet

    I was able to remove it using a pin in the small hole. Once it is out there may be pieces that want to fall off; a round ring and the white retainer piece.

    • From the top of the iPod, insert a metal spudger between the outer case and the battery to remove the adhesive that holds the battery in place.

    • Be extremely careful not to poke or puncture the battery itself, as this may cause the battery to combust.

    In case anyone else didn't realize this, you need to push your spudger fairly deep into the iPod to completely seperate the glue from the battery. I just stuck mine in maybe half an inch, then spent 30 minutes struggling to move the logic board. After removing all of the glue, it slid out with relative ease.

    dharris1 - 回复

    I didn’t have a spudger so I used a metal nail file with a rounded end. Heated the back of the iPod with a hair dryer for about a minute first to soften the adhesive and it all worked fairly smoothly. Be gentle with the lcd display.

    Cheryl Berk - 回复

    Keep in mind the only glue holding the logic board to the metal case is a small rectangle of adhesive. In the picture, the author is just scraping away at the glue. You don’t need to insert your spudger any lower than half an inch as there isn’t any other adhesive holding the logic board to the metal case . Once the glue has been scraped away, then the board should slide out easily. If it doesn’t slide out, then the adhesive is still there.

  18. There is a small white retainer between the camera and microphone that keeps the inner components from sliding around.

    I tried this but with the Nano I worked on the retainer cannot be pushed down, instead there is a small diagonal hole in the retainer that you can fit a pin or needle into and lift out the retainer.

    ethan - 回复

    Yeah step 18 is BS, You need to pull the retainer up with a pin, not depress it. I destroyed my first nano as i pushed so hard trying to depress it that it deformed and I had to give up. Bad bad tip that needs correcting at step 18.

  19. Once the retainer has been pushed past its hole in the outer case, the spudger used to depress it is no longer necessary.
    • Once the retainer has been pushed past its hole in the outer case, the spudger used to depress it is no longer necessary.

    • Using gentle but steady force, push on the top of the LCD to slide the logic board assembly out of the bottom of the iPod.

    • Do not push on the battery, as this may puncture it and cause it to combust.

    • Constantly mind the hold switch plate, making sure it doesn't snag on an edge and tear the ribbon cable.

    I submitted an edit for this step. The first bullet (about the spudger not being needed once the retainer is past the hole in the case) is now irrelevant because step 17 now has us removing the retainer completely.

at step 14 when lifting the click wheel have a look at the small black bar, placed to the upper edge of the chip. in its center it holds a very small tiny coil spring thats hardly to see and that easily jumps out. better you lift the click wheel in parallel to the ground. if spring jumps off one time, you will never find it again. i guess it has some grounding purpose a it docks on the metal below the logic on the click wheel. also a point to have an eye on at reassembly
