Wonderful detail. I'd like to add something.
Because I don't have the ability to film - or take pics myself - nor would I at this time, I'd like to add one point that would have helped-me out.
The tape colours you used are brilliant to point out the location of the screws.
I'd only offer that the screw colour and sizes would help a lot for putting it back together.
Because this was my first time - and I kept finding more screws until I found this help site - I had screws of different lengths which I forgot where they went back to.
I believe there are all black, and all silver screws.
There are perhaps 2 types - maybe 3.
There's no need to call them 1/2-32 or something to confuse the masses, just the lengths.
I think the shortest black screws are about 2 mm long and the longer ones 3 mm or 4 mm.
The silvers are short and different coarseness of thread - memory failing here.
Anyway, if the OP is still here, I love the help - and if you find the time, perhaps you could include the pictures and sizes, colors and number of all the screws we remove.
Very nice job. Just wanna say that I own a Black WII and it is the same procedures.
I just wanted to say thanks for this. i fixed a broken dvd drive with this tut. i taken one apart before blindly but this time was good to have some reference shots cause it has been awhile since i dont this type of fix. Got to love how kids just drop a wii lol This is the best one so far i have seen.
