With the heat gun set on "low", begin heating the lower portion of the Touch near the home button.
Insert the edge of an iPod opening tool between the front glass panel and the black plastic bezel near the home button.
Pry the bottom edge of the front panel upward, being careful not to bend the glass excessively.
When there is enough room to grab the bottom edge of the front panel, lift the front panel away from the body of the Touch to peel up the adhesive along its left and right edges.
Carefully pull the top of the front panel assembly away from the adhesive holding it to the Touch, minding the short digitizer cable connecting the two components.
