Use this guide to replace your Nano's front panel assembly. A new front panel assembly will provide a new front glass panel, digitizer, and LCD. The LCD is non-separable from the digitizer.

  1. Use a heat gun or hair dryer to soften the adhesive securing the perimeter of the front panel assembly to the outer case.

    • Be careful not to overheat the front panel assembly, as it may result in damage to the LCD.

    Do I need new adhesive to reassemble?

  2. While the front panel is still warm, use the edge of an iPod opening tool to pry it from the headphone jack side of the front panel assembly out of the Nano.
    • While the front panel is still warm, use the edge of an iPod opening tool to pry it from the headphone jack side of the front panel assembly out of the Nano.

    • Do not attempt to pry out the front panel assembly from, or insert the opening tool into the left side of the display, as the display data cable is right underneath and may be damaged in the process.

    • Continue prying the perimeter of the front panel assembly out of the outer casing, being careful not to damage the display data cable held under its left edge.

    • If the front panel is excessively difficult to lift out of the outer case, reheat the area and try again.

    I strongly recommend using a Small Suction Cup (IF145-019-1) instead of a plastic opening tool.

    After half an hour of various heating times, trying to use a plastic opening tool, I overheated the LCD, which caused it to discolour. Now I need to buy a new screen. I wish I'd thought to use a suction cup earlier; it seems so obvious in retrospect.

    I used a hot water bottle with towelling cover, resting on it for about 5 minutes. glue softened at 45 degrees. enough to easily lift panel.. Ipod’s working temperate is 55 deg C max according to apple. I used IR heat gun for temperature check.

    We have a temperature controlled testing oven at work. I set the oven for 50 degrees C, let it absorb heat for half an hour, then took it out. I had zero luck with either the plastic pry tool or the suction cup, so I carefully pried up the indicated side with the sharp pointed tip of a dental pick until I could get the plastic tool into the crack opening.

    How come you did not put back the metal plate that goes between the iPod and the display?

    You do put the steel shield back in to place and screw it down, but only after you connect the digitizer and display data cable connectors to their sockets on the logic board.

Don't forget to include in your repair the adhesive to hold the new screen on. It does not come with the new display. I as unable to find it at iFixit's site but was able to get it here for $10 incl p&p: http://www.badgizmorepair.com/product/ip...

By the time I paid for the screen, opening tool and glue it turned out to be more economical and less hassle to take it to the Apple store (albeit less satisfying than doing it yourself). I suggest you forego the opening tool if you have a good flat blade jewelers screwdriver. A fine temporary fix for not having the correct screen glue is a piece of packing tape. It leaves the iPod open to the elements though, so I highly recommend the correct glue in order to avoid water leaking in around the edge of the screen.

You will also need a very small jewellers or electronics screwdriver for the two screws. I just managed it with an oversized flathead driver.

Akela66 - Responder

i had bought these part and succeeded in repair my drown ipod using these guides (luckily only the lcd that didnt work). and it work nicely. thanks

bubba12250 - Responder

Thanks for the guide. Very useful and easy to follow.

Had some issues with getting the screen off initially, but that was due to the glass along the headphone jack side being cracked into several small little shards (hence the reason for following the guide ;)

Used a replacement screen (incl. toolkit and replacement precut adhesive) that I purchased from ebay for around US$10 (free shipping).

Jared Yates - Responder

Simple as that? You know what sucks about an incomplete repair description - is the incomplete thinker that posted it. There is nothing on here about what insulators remain, nothing about sequencing the reassembly, nothing about adhesive, etc...

Get your $@$* together and compete your how-to you half ass.

alexis - Responder

This guide is useless. I removed the screen but cant get the flex / IC cable from the LCD back in place with these adhesive.

Eric Rauchfuß - Responder

Yeah, took about ten minutes, really easy

Followed directions, used iFixit tools I had previously purchased, worked flawlessly. One bit of struggle while reattaching the larger of the two ribbon cables (the orange/brown one): took a bit of work to get it aligned properly to the tiny socket. Old eyes and fat fingers most likely. I used thin black tape I had purchased for another screen replacement (I believe it is referenced and may be sold on this site). Did a great job of reattaching the screen without using glue. Glad I could salvage this iPod Nano 6th gen. Apple doesn’t repair them anymore and it is a terrific form factor for music and FM radio on the go. Now let’s see how long the battery will hold out. That replacement might be beyond my skillset.
