hyeadphone jack nackered
successfully - opening the pod was the hardest and most time consuming part, and i bent the casing a little but once i got it open the fix was a breeze!
DO NOT STRESS! this repair will go successfully, just don't get overwhelmed by the amount of steps to work through and how fiddly it all seems. i bought all the tools from the site and they were all used and worked well. opening the pod is the hardest part, just don't get annoyed with it, be slow and calm and all will go well :)
