How To: Take apart the Xbox 360 and the console disc drive

Take apart the Xbox 360 and the console disc drive

Disconnect all wires from XBox. Hold power button for 2 minutes to clear electric charges from XBox. Remove hard drives by pulling hard drive button and just straight up. Remove faceplate in XBox by gripping on the sides. Remove the bottom and top panels. Separate them. You'll hear a pop when they release. Complete separation by unhooking the tabs with your fingernail. Use a Tore T10 star screwdriver to remove the 6 screws in the video. You don't need to remove any other screws. Set them aside. Watch this video for the rest of the instructions and demonstrations.
