iPad 3 Repairability Score: 2 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair)
The LCD is easy to remove once the front panel is gone.
The battery is not soldered to the logic board, making the replacement process a tad less difficult.
Just like the iPad 2, the front panel is glued to the rest of the device, greatly increasing the chances of cracking the glass when trying to remove it.
Gobs, gobs, and gobs of adhesive hold down everything in place, including the prone-to-start-a-fire-if-punctured battery.
The LCD has foam sticky tape adhering it to the front panel, increasing chances of the front panel being shattered during disassembly
You can't access the front panel's connector until you remove the LCD.
