Dissecting iPod after slamming it in a car door

Tom Robinson at Macteens.com has posted a photo tutorial on how to dissect your old iPod after having accidently slammed a car door on his iPod 5GB. He decided to take it apart and auction the parts on eBay, after which he received about $230 not including the damaged hard drive.

“My iPod was dead; there was no doubt about it. The warranty had already expired so I decided to dissect it. I had previously taken the back cover off in order to sand the metallic casing for a brushed metal look, but I had never taken anything apart.”
