Step Lines

[* black] iPod ~~turtle~~ Touch 6th Generation Repairability Score: '''4 out of 10''' (10 is easiest to repair)
[* green] While very difficult, opening the case and replacing components is not impossible.
[* green] The battery is adhered with pull tabs that should aid in battery replacement.
[* red] Many components are soldered together, requiring either a very difficult or a very expensive repair if any one part breaks.
[* red] There are no external screws. Instead, a combo of clips and adhesive makes it difficult to open the case.
[* red] Ribbon cables connected to the logic board run over the top and connect on the bottom, making it difficult to remove the board or disconnect the cables.
[* black] And of course, a big high-five to our pals at [http://creativeelectron.com/|Creative Electron|new_window=true] for their awesome images and expertise!
