Is 2nd. Gen back panel interchangeable with 3rd. Gen?


I have a 32 GB 2nd Gen Touch and the insides are basically shot. However, there is engraving on the back panel that I would like to save. Will the 2nd. Gen back panel fit on a 3rd. Gen. I thought since I have to replace all the internal components I might as well update them as much as possible. Would like to use a 64 GB 3rd. Gen if possible. Thank you.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I don’t know off hand, but i would look at the measurements of both panels, and see if they are the same. Even so, do this repair at your own risk.

Thanks for the reply. The information I have gathered thus far says the sizes are the same. My real concern is whether the stand off for the screws that hold the boards/controls in place are in the same location. In this case, the reward is worth the risk.
