Use a metal spudger or Zune opening tool to remove the small silver plastic cap on top of the device.
There are two T4 screws under the cap. Remove both with a T4 screwdriver.
Be careful removing the screws; the screw heads can break very easily.
Using a metal spudger or Zune opening tool, remove the aluminum backing starting from the top. There are 5 clips on each side and two on the bottom.
Be careful not to press the tools in too far; there are exposed cables right inside the edge of the device.
Remove the silver tape from the bottom center and the top right. This allows access to the hard drive and the battery.
Unclick the black bar connecting the orange hard drive cable to the bottom of the hard drive. Gently push towards the bottom of the device on the black bar until you hear a click sound, it is now disengaged from the hard drive.
If the cable doesn't come off easily, the black bar has not been un-clicked.
Now gently pull the orange hard drive cable to remove it from the hard drive.
Lift the hard drive from the device.
Hard Drive Replacement Only: Check to make sure the hard drive cable is in good condition and then connect the new hard drive in the same place, following the steps in reverse order.
