    • Use a heat gun to soften the adhesive underneath the plastic bezel at the bottom of the iPod.

    • Use a low heat setting and do not hold the heat gun in place for too long to avoid melting the plastic bezel.

    • Use a plastic opening tool to pry the bezel from the case of the iPod and remove it.

    • 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.

  12. iPod Nano 5th Generation Display Replacement: étape 12, image 1 de 2 iPod Nano 5th Generation Display Replacement: étape 12, image 2 de 2
    • Insert a metal spudger into the slot at the bottom of the iPod just above the dock connector.

    • Use the metal spudger to pry up the bottom edge of the click wheel.

  13. iPod Nano 5th Generation Display Replacement: étape 13, image 1 de 2 iPod Nano 5th Generation Display Replacement: étape 13, image 2 de 2
    • Place a guitar pick between the click wheel and the case of the Nano and remove the metal spudger.

    • Pry up the edges of the click wheel with the guitar pick until the click wheel comes free from the case.

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

  14. iPod Nano 5th Generation Display Replacement: étape 14, image 1 de 2 iPod Nano 5th Generation Display Replacement: étape 14, image 2 de 2
    • Lift the click wheel out of the way with one hand and use a plastic opening tool to pry the click wheel ribbon cable connector off its socket on the logic board.

  15. iPod Nano 5th Generation Display Replacement, Logic Board Assembly: étape 15, image 1 de 3 iPod Nano 5th Generation Display Replacement, Logic Board Assembly: étape 15, image 2 de 3 iPod Nano 5th Generation Display Replacement, Logic Board Assembly: étape 15, image 3 de 3
    • 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.

    • 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.

  16. iPod Nano 5th Generation Display Replacement: étape 16, image 1 de 1
    • 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.

  17. iPod Nano 5th Generation Display Replacement: étape 17, image 1 de 3 iPod Nano 5th Generation Display Replacement: étape 17, image 2 de 3 iPod Nano 5th Generation Display Replacement: étape 17, image 3 de 3
    • There is a small white retainer between the camera and microphone that keeps the inner components from sliding around.

    • Insert a push pin into the hole at the corner of the retainer and lift it out of the case.

  18. iPod Nano 5th Generation Display Replacement: étape 18, image 1 de 1
    • 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.

  19. iPod Nano 5th Generation Display Replacement: étape 19, image 1 de 2 iPod Nano 5th Generation Display Replacement: étape 19, image 2 de 2
    • Continue to push the logic board assembly through the outer case of the iPod with a spudger.

    • Tolerances inside the Nano are extremely tight. Be very patient and go slowly when removing the logic board assembly, and make sure no components or ribbon cables get caught on the case.

    • To make sure that the hold switch plate does not catch on the housing of the iPod and tear the cable, feed the switch straight down the center of the device, where the opening is the widest.

  20. iPod Nano 5th Generation Display Replacement: étape 20, image 1 de 1
    • Once the top of the LCD has cleared the bottom edge of the outer case, remove the logic board assembly from the body of the iPod.

    • Again, be sure to mind the hold switch plate, that it doesn't catch on the bottom of the click wheel hole.

  23. iPod Nano 5th Generation Display Replacement: étape 23, image 1 de 2 iPod Nano 5th Generation Display Replacement: étape 23, image 2 de 2
    • The display panel of the iPod Nano is held to the frame by an adhesive. In the following steps, work slowly and carefully to avoid damaging your device.

    • Insert an iPod opening tool between the top of the display and the metal frame.

    • Lift the iPod opening tool to carefully pry the top of the display off the metal frame.

  24. iPod Nano 5th Generation Display Replacement: étape 24, image 1 de 2 iPod Nano 5th Generation Display Replacement: étape 24, image 2 de 2

Re-assembly is kind of the reverse of disassembly, but replacing some of the glue may be required, particularly for the camera/mic cover. Sliding the logic board into the housing is an exercise in considerable care - the display ribbon, the speaker ribbon, various bits of yellow tape, all can snag on the lugs around the clickwheel hole, or the camera/mic holes.
