You will of course have to totally disassemble the iPod. The dock connector is solder onto the board. You will have to do lots of soldering. You will have to un-solder two anchors and about 30 connections, they are very small and close to each other. So you have to take extra care not to shorten the pins out. After that you will have to resolder all those connections and the two anchors. Not an easy task, unless you are used to soldering small pieces. This video is not for a 4th gen but will give you an idea what you are up against. Hope this helps, good luck.

Actually there's a very simple way to remove the old connector you using A heat gun. You can pick one up for about 25 or 30 bucks at a hardware store. Disassemble your motherboard from the rest of the iPod put it in a clamp and use the heat gun on that connector back and forth on the metal parts in the connector. When it gets hot enough, the solder will melt and the connector will kind of droop. When it does that, Tap lightly with a screwdriver and it'll fall right out.

You have to remove the old by desoldering the two screw holes with a desoldering iron and bend slightly. Turn board over and with a heat gun with a small tip evenly heat the 30 pin connector until solder has liquified. hold with a pair of pliers gently pull it away from board while moving heat back and forth over. make sure to protect other components from heat with heat resistant tape or aluminum foil. Reattach the the two screw holes with solder and then align all pins to correspond with the 30 pins on board. Turn board back over and resolder using a heat gun and solder paste or using solder and a iron. Check for any bridging before completing.
