Model A1136 / 30, 60, or 80 GB hard drive / black or white plastic front

I just replaced the battery, but now the back is loose.

I was replacing the battery on a 30gb ipod video, and it seemed to go well, except that the back is not completely holding in one corner. I assume I over flexed that part when separating the front and back. Any suggestions on how to improve the fit?

gatewaynomad check the back and see if you can straighten out the clips that hold it onto the frame. If it is bend to far, spend the couple of $$ and replace it with a substitute. They are available at place like Amazon or ebay. If you don't it will pop open anytime it has a minor drop etc. this could cause larger damage to either the ribbon cables, battery or even the hard drive.

Good advice. I am under a time constraint, but I might see if they will bring it back in, if I order a new back plate.
