This guide is for the 5th gen, my wife's ipod was a 5.5 gen "Late 2006 model") and so the direections did not work. However, the opening-the-case instructions are still relevant. I was able to work out the rest myself from there. Thanks for the guide!
I found it easier to remove the hinge on the other side (see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qWmoXDuU... for how) and then do the cables that way, wrapping them (and a touch of tape) around a small screwdriver to help feed through... But holy crap was that the hardest part of this.
Had it not been for that, this would have been a 20 minute repair, instead, first time, 3 hours.... wtf
