I will teach you how to dismantle the AirPods charging case as much as possible without damaging it. This dissasembly is a case that has spent a lot of time in the water and has significant corrosion. You can use this method where possible to remove or replace the battery or internal circuitry.

  1. This is a charging case for AirPods, which is currently waterlogged. I will try to take it apart and test the internals for water damage.

  2. Find a pair of tweezer, and then divide it into two halves to create a spudger. Then grind it with a grinder to the size required to be reasonably long and thick, ready for the next step of disassembly!

  4. Use a polished metal lever to loosen it further, then fix it with a vise grip, tighten it slowly to deform the load and outer shell, and then loosen with the tool. (Remember to secure the AirPods on both sides of the shell before attaching it. Prevent the press from leaving traces on the outer casing.)

  15. After pulling away the circuit board, you can see that some of its components are very corroded. After all, the case was in the water for a long time.

  17. After the cleaning, don't worry about the lithium battery just yet. Connect the charger to the circuit board and see if the charging indicator turns on. Looks like this circuit board still needs work. The light isn't turning on. Check that the current is 6 mA. The PMIC is often the problem, as it is one of the more fragile components of the board. Remove any damaged components, find their identical replacements and replace them on the board. Only attempt this step if you have experience with microsoldering. If not, you can consult my recommendations at the end of the disassembly.

  18. I almost forgot the button that iFixit didn't disassemble completely! What is the secret of this button? To be sure, I take a peek. On the inside, it looks similar to the iPhone 5 and iPhone SE home buttons. What is the secret of this button? To be sure, I take a peek.

  19. In summary, this disassembly of an AirPods case is directed primarily to normal users who have waterlogged AirPods cases. You can attempt to dismantle them with this method, as best you can. After the cleaning, you can use a hair dryer to heat and dry the circuit board. If functionality is restored, you can use B7000 glue to put the case back together. Hopefully this helps everyone!

    • Finally, I'd like to ask the teardown team at iFixit: Can you change the repairability score of the AirPods from a 0 now? (^_^)

66666,我看拆的過程中有一些部分損毀,請問還能裝回去麼?

zhewen - Antwoord

,部分损伤只是内部的根本不影响,肯定可以装回的,用胶粘好完全看不出来,不影响使用,除非你打开盖子仔细看边上的划痕,但立刻用抛光砂纸打磨去掉

我去 厉害的攻略! 我的airpod进水之后就搁置了。 准备试一下。请问如何控制热枪的温度?

Sheng Qu - Antwoord

短时间内大概90-110度今天你自己感觉了手抹上很烫手且外壳未发生形变即可

Holy !&&* this is a awesome guide!

Interesting to see Apple putting in a interesting amount of effort …

But iFixit, far as I know, had not use a hot air gun so far…

Time to use one of those :P
