Disconnect the headphone and click wheel cable from the logic board. It's tricky to see what you're doing, so you'll have to feel the connector inside the iPod with the spudger.
You need to pry the connector toward the front of the iPod until it comes loose from the logic board.
Do not entirely remove the headphone jack. The cable is still connected to the click wheel.
Notice the Apple logo on the ARM chip. The numbers on it read: 33753291 8701 N02R5Q5 0627 ARM.
