    • Remove the two 3.2 mm screws.

    • These screws are angled toward the outer case and are also very small. Use a sharp screwdriver and be careful not to strip the screws.

    • Insert an iPod opening tool between the outer case and the metal hold switch plate near the top of the screen .

    • While slightly lifting up on the iPod opening tool, pull the hold switch plate out of the iPod.

    • Remove the first iPod opening tool from between the glass and LCD in the top of the device.

    • Prying up slightly on the iPod opening tool, insert a second iPod opening tool in between the front glass and the outer case, on the right side of the screen.

    • Slide the second iPod opening tool along the right edge of the panel to remove the adhesive.

    • With one iPod opening tool still between the glass and outer case, insert a second iPod opening tool inbetween the front glass and outer case, on the right side.

If the glass is cracked, you may not have to remove the end of the ipod to pry out the glass. In my case, I was able to carefully (with out putting pressure on the screen below) get the glass out in pieces.

This step by step guide is perfect for replacing the glass! There is no need to remove the click-wheel or the camera bezel - as seen in may other videos and guides. So stay away from the click wheel if you can - it's just glued in (there is no snap!) and it's really hard to put back in place again. And yes, ideally you can remove the glass without opening anything. It is just glued in and the new one will go in from the top. Good Luck!

Dear Steven, To me exactly the same happened, although I was the person who got the Ipod and dropped it. So I do understand how to get the glass out, but how do I put a new one in? Just insert it and put everything back on? Should I use glue when I put the screen in? Or will it just stay there on its own? Thanks!
