Introduction

The motherboard/battery assembly is sold together.

Please be aware that removing the rear panel from the back of the iPod will cause considerable damage to the rear panel. We highly recommend purchasing an additional rear panel to properly reassemble the iPod.

  • Before opening your iPod, ensure that the hold switch is in the locked position.

I found removing the back to be very difficult and had to use a mini screwdriver to complete it. While removing the back to replace the clickwheel, I not only destroyed the back, I inadvertently mangled the video cable and so I then had to replace that too.

The rear panel is secured to the front case by eight clips permanently attached to the rear panel.  These clips lock onto small tabs machined into the front case.

  • To free the tabs, they must be pushed toward the center of the Nano. Note the location of all tabs on the rear panel. When using an iPod opening tool to free the rear panel, be sure to work the tool at the location of these clips.

  • To aid in visualization, the two clips boxed in red are located closest to the headphone jack.

Try that first to find what you have

  • Opening the iPod can be challenging. Don't get discouraged if it takes you a few tries before the iPod is opened.

  • Insert the large iPod opening tool into the seam between the front case and rear panel of the iPod, above the dock connector. The tool's edge should point toward the rear panel to prevent any accidental scratching of the anodized aluminum front case.

  • Insert a small iPod opening tool into the seam on the headphone jack side of the Nano, with the edge of the tool pointing toward the rear panel.

  • Gently enlarge the existing gap by pressing/wiggling the small iPod opening tool into the gap near each of the the two tabs attached to the rear case, pushing the clips toward the center of the Nano until both have been freed.

the tool i bought because you suggested it to me got inevitably broken like it was butter made, thanks

This is virtually impossible! I have already cut myself when the stupid tool slipped trying to push in on the clips. Why on earth would anyone design something to impossible to open when they know the battery would need to be replaced at some point?

Forget the iFixit plastic tools. You need to use steel on steel. I used a heavy duty engravers knife I happened to have, to get it started. Then, a fine chisel and jeweler’s screwdrivers and LOTS of force to pry it off. I messed up the aluminum front case a bit, but I cleaned that up with sandpaper. The back case was bent a bit, but I straightened that, and after replacing the battery I fastened it back on with black electricians tape. It looks quite well, and good enough for me. I will cancel my order for a replacement back. Joe M 2/3/2018

  • The large iPod opening tool is no longer needed to gain access to the left side of the iPod.

  • Repeat the same procedure listed in the previous step to free the three clips along the hold switch side of the Nano.

  • Insert an iPod opening tool into the gap near the top left corner of the Nano and work to free the three clips along the top edge of the rear panel.

  • After ensuring all tabs are free, separate the two halves of the iPod.

  • The rear panel is now free from the iPod.

thanks you for help

  • With the rear case removed, the back side of your Nano should now look like this.

At this stage an alternative (and more simple) procedure is to cut the battery wires between the battery and the logic board (one at a time to avoid shorts), remove the old battery, fit the new battery, strip and prepare the ends of the old cut wires, then solder the new battery to these wires again being careful not to short connections. Then sleeve or encapsulate these soldered joints (wax or blu tack will do). This makes it an easier and quicker job.

  • Remove the following six screws:

    • One 1.8 mm Phillips.

    • Three 1.9 mm Phillips.

    • One 2.4 mm Phillips.

    • One 2.6 mm Phillips.

If your headphone jack isn't working, note that it is possible to replace just the headphone jack here:

There are just 4 soldering points that need to be loosened, and then you can put on the new one.

One 2.6 mm Phillips. The colour of this screw isn´t blue in the picture, it´s green.

I was able to remove the back cover using two think plastic guitar picks and my red cross donor card

I read some steps further back and it was recommended to NOT remove all the screws and the boards indicated in the following steps, but to go directly to replace the battery. It is no more difficult to go directly to cut the battery leads, or unsolder them. I tried to splice the new battery wires to the cut leads from the board, but it was hard working with the fine wire. I ended up clearing the top of the three battery solder-through holes, but I did not clear the holes. I soldered the battery leads directly to the top of the small round solder dots…first the white, then the black, and finally the red. I fastened the battery in-place with a piece of two-sided carpet tape. I straightened up the back and taped into place with black electricians tape. It is very delicate work, and not for a beginner…I repair family jewelry, which is valuable practice. Joe M 2/3/2018

  • Using a spudger, flip up the brown click wheel ribbon cable retaining clip.

  • The clip is hinged at the end nearest the edge of the case.

  • Use the tip of a spudger to slide the click wheel ribbon cable out of its socket.

  • The logic board is still connected to the iPod by the display ribbon cable.

  • The logic board is still connected to the front case by the display ribbon cable, located on the headphone jack side of the logic board.

  • Lift the logic board assembly out of the front case from the click wheel connector side (the cable you just disconnected). Rotate the logic board assembly about the display ribbon cable and lay it next to the front case.

When reassembling the logic board into the case, watch out for the tiny nose of the audio jack that's facing towards the center of the device. This nose has to be inserted first, then the rest of the audio jack followed by the logic board itself.
