Modding my iPod Classic

iPod Classic Click Wheel Replacement

iPod Classic Click Wheel Replacement

1 - 3 hours

Very difficult

My Problem

In trying to install a clear iVuse front panel on my iPod I damaged the click wheel. I didn't realise I'd damaged it until I got every thing back together again and went to use the iPod and the click wheel didn't work.

My Fix

Replacing the part was simple enough. The hardest thing is getting the back cover off the iPod.

My Advice

Not sure if I would do this again. I was planning on trying to put in a bigger hard drive (240GB) but after the trouble I had getting the back cover off this time I have my reservations about attempting it again.
