Before opening your iPod, ensure that the hold switch is in the locked position.
When removing the the bottom bezel, be sure not to bend the plastic surrounding the dock connector.
Carefully insert an iPod opening tool in the seam between the metal casing and white plastic bezel
Lift the bottom bezel off the iPod. It's glued on using a mild adhesive, so some force may be required.
Remove the following two screws:
One #00 Phillips screw with a large head near the headphone jack.
One #00 Phillips screw with a smaller head near the side of the iPod. This screw strips easily, so be sure to press down firmly on the screwdriver.
Use a metal spudger to carefully pry the headphone jack out of the casing. DO NOT remove the headphone jack from the iPod entirely, as it is connected via a fragile ribbon connector to the click wheel.
Slide the headphone jack out until the white plastic housing is no longer held in place by the metal casing.
