    • To free the tabs, they must be pushed toward the center of the Nano. Note the location of all tabs on the rear panel. When using an iPod opening tool to free the rear panel, be sure to work the tool at the location of these clips.

    • To aid in visualization, the two clips boxed in red are located closest to the headphone jack.

  3. Opening the iPod can be challenging. Don't get discouraged if it takes you a few tries before the iPod is opened. Insert the large iPod opening tool into the seam between the front case and rear panel of the iPod, above the dock connector. The tool's edge should point toward the rear panel to prevent any accidental scratching of the anodized aluminum front case.

Never have I seen such ridiculous design. Despite what this blog claims there is no way the blue plastic tool or guitar picks will remove the back cover. The only way I was able to even slightly part the side seam was with a sharp flat bladed screw driver driven in by a clamp - which bent up the aluminum frame. Now using to the blue plastic "tool" (junk) I pretty much destroyed it working it around. The sharp metal back cover just cuts right into it shreds it. Back to metal flat bladed screwdrivers.

Got back over off - but frame no longer straight. Carefully straightened, Replace the battery & re-assembled. Unit beeped - Screen came on and shows cracks and stress marks but no menu.

Because of awful design I destroyed the screen just trying to get the back cover off to simply replace battery.

So - since Apple was so determined not to let me perform a simple battery replacement I am now equally determined NEVER to buy any Apple product again. So much for being a good design company - Total crap.

It’s funny that Chinese companies that make ipod nano clones managed to attach the back case with 2 or 4 tiny screws. Apple also refuses to sell any parts to repair older electronics. Their agenda seems to be” Why would you want to repair an older product when you can just buy a new one?”.
