Introdução

First attempt at a tear down of Seagates 3TB External Drive.

Este teardown (desmontagem analítica) não é um guia de reparo. Para reparar seu/sua External Storage, use o nosso manual de serviço.

  1. Start at the plain end (the opposite side from the power jack) with the spudger. Carefully pry slightly up and away.
    • Start at the plain end (the opposite side from the power jack) with the spudger. Carefully pry slightly up and away.

    • Once you have the end opened up, use the credit card to hold it open.

    • When you have the entire end separated, carefully pry the sides out and away along the adjoining two sides, working your way towards the end with the power jack. Save that end for last, it should lift away when you're done with the other sides.

    • Work around the drive, ends first then the sides to open it

    • This is really challenging and I did end up breaking some of the clips. Its pretty hard to tear apart.
