30 minutos - 2 horas
My 160gb iPod battery would no longer hold a charge. This had happened before when the iPod was under warranty. Since it was out of warranty now, I thought that it had become an expensive paperweight. I found ifixit through a search and saw that they had an instructional video on how to disassemble the iPod and replace the battery. I thought for less than $20, I would give it a shot.
The repair went very smoothly. The most tedious part of the whole thing is getting the iPod to begin to come apart. Once I got one side out of the base, the rest was a piece of cake. The whole job took less than 30 minutes. Probably half of that was taking it apart.
Patience is key here. Take your time, be calm, and it comes apart just like the video demonstrates. The only thing that I wish I had done prior to the repair was to have purchased a thin putty knife. I didn't have one available, but a small spatula worked just fine.
