Can you mail parts to spain?

I need to replace the battery on my iPod 3rd gen touch 32 gb. I live in Spain I am worried the parts won't get through customs. Anyone have any experience?

well customs are a good point.

if there is anything mentioned about apple on the invoice - they can and will seize the battery.

another thing is the shipping time and the shipping costs from the us to spain - if you wait a month, it's almost cheap - if not, you will pay horrible shipping costs to get the battery fast.

to get around the customs problem - buy within europe!

the battery costs around the same as in the us - but mostly with the sipping costs included.

check ebay in germany, the uk, italy france and so on. it's easier and you will have no customs trouble at all.

Hi Sunshine. I agree with Markus. Even though I'd like to support this site by placing my order here, because of shipping and costums, I decided to order a battery form UK (part4ipod.com). I can not say anything about that shop in general, but in my case they were quick and the price was fine.

Hmmm. The ifixit people say they have shipped to Spain. I asked specifically about customs and they said:

"We have not had any issues with Spain, so I think you will be fine."
