Display was broken after many drops and dunks into water.
Challenging task but the instructions were excellent. The tools were valuable but would have been irrelevant without the detailed repair instructions. iPod worked flawlessly after the repair.
Consider replacing the front panel when replacing the display. My front panel is sratched and I could have really improved the overall display by also rplacing the front panel.
