Nintendo Wii Teardown
Teardowns provide a look inside a device and should not be used as disassembly instructions.
An awesome member of our community made this guide. It is not managed by iFixit staff.
In this teardown, we open a Wii to the logic board. I couldn't have done this without the help of my girlfriend, Elizabeth.

Remove all screws from the case.
Some screws are under rubber feet, or small, square paper screw covers (red square). I used a sharp metal tool to get under the screw covers. You could use an X-acto knife.
Several case screws require a Tri-Wing screwdriver.
The next step has more pictures of removing rubber feet and the screws underneath. The feet and screwcovers are self-adhesive, but not every foot or screwcover has a screw.
Careful! If you don't remove the feet and the screws underneath before you try to pull off the front panel, the tab can split!
Once all screws are removed, you should be able to pull off the front drive panel.
The wire connecting the front panel (green squares in the third image) can be pulled out gently by hand or with the help of a spudger.
