iPod Classic Battery Replacement

30 minutes - 2 hours

Very difficult

My Problem

iPod Classic quit working

My Fix

I've had it open a couple times previously so that went OK. The toughest part was the speaker jack which is so tiny it's hard to tell that it has a flip-up retainer. Needed mag glass to see. Appreciated magnified view of it in Guide.

My Advice

It's not an easy fix due to tiny jacks and ribbon wires. Locking tweezers are a big help for ribbon wires.
