Figure 1

  • To disassemble iPod shuffle 2nd Generation, first of all you need to remove the top and the bottom bezels as indicated in figure 1. Use Safe Open Pry Tool to pop these plastic bezels off. Note that these plastic bezels will be held in place with some adhesive. You may find it easier to heat it first using a hair-dryer to pry these off conveniently. Insert safe open pry tool in the edges as indicated in the figure 1 but be careful as these plastic bezels are thin and you should not pry the metal plate beneath the bezels.
  • Now remove the "Shuffle" and "Power" switch from the iPod bottom.



Figure 2

  • Once you have the top and the bottom bezels removed from the iPod. There will be two small Phillips screws exposed at the top and two screws at the bottom. Use small Phillips screws to unscrew these 4 screws. Figure 2 shows the locations of the screws at the bottom of iPod.
  • With the screws removed, you will now need to carefully lift up and remove the metal frames using a safe open pry tool from the top as well as bottom. It is recommended to start off from the side indicated by blue arrow in figure 2.
