I just SUCCESSFULLY finished a drive swap with an eBay replacement.
YOU DO HAVE TO SWAP THE OLD LOGIC BOARD FROM THE BROKEN DRIVE TO THE NEW DRIVE. If you don't you will get the error code 160-1402.
It's not bad. Just remove the 7 screws to release the assembly from the bottom cover.
The logic has a small sensor board (?) hard wired to it. Remove the screw that holds it in place and replace with along with the old board.
There are 4 tape cables. the wide one has a clamp connector. the others can be seated with tweezers.
The card is loosely held in place with a black tab in the front and a movable, silver tab in the back.
Low humidity areas please use a ESD armband. it is a logic board. Or just handle the outer edge of the card and nothing else.
On more thing. The tape cable from the assembled drive to the Wii U is directional. Meaning the cable needs to attached exactly the way it came out or you will get the 1400 error.
Worked for me. Hope this helps
Brad Senatore, July 13 is right, YOU DO HAVE TO SWAP THE OLD LOGIC BOARD FROM THE BROKEN DRIVE TO THE NEW DRIVE. If you don't you will get the error code 160-1402.
