The 7th-Generation iPad earns a 2 out of 10 on our repairability scale (10 is the easiest to repair):

Non-laminated, separately replaceable cover glass and LCD makes most screen repairs far less expensive.

The LCD is simple to remove once you separate the cover glass/digitizer.

As with all iPads, a solid barrier of very strong adhesive hinders all repairs.

The Lightning port, a common point of failure, is soldered to the logic board.

More adhesive holds nearly everything else in place. Battery and logic board replacements are particularly obnoxious.
