Broken Drive Replacement
Replace your Defective Nintendo Wii Drive
This is an old walk through that I wrote up years ago for replacing the Drive on a Nintendo Wii. Total repair time should be less than 30 minutes for a beginner, & around 10 minutes after you have done a few of them & build up experience.
First things first, we need to disassemble the unit. In the image below is the unit with all chords, attachments, & devices unplugged. Also please remove any disks at this time, as it is much easier to do with the unit turned off.
The first step to Nintendo Wii disassembly is to remove the 2 port covers. These are held in with tabs & just slide right out. The image below shows them removed.
In the current position, you can remove the three black phillips screws. There are two along the left & these are the same. Then the one to the right holds down the face place is slightly larger than the other two. Set all of these screws aside once removed.
Next step is to flip the Nintendo Wii with the feet side up. The port side will be facing down.
You are now going to want to remove the screw which holds down the battery. It is located in the bottom left. Also remove all three stickers that hide the screws. Lastly you want to remove the rubber foot in the upper left.
When completed, you should see the following image.
I recommend that you should sort the screws as you remove them. On this side you will remove the following :
- 2 silver phillips screws across the top
- 2 silver tri-wing screws across the bottom
- 1 black mini phillips screw in the upper left. This screw holds down the front faceplate.
As you flip the unit over, it will be feet up, & will respemble the following picture :
With the unit in it's current possition, there are two stickers that need to be removed for the faceplate screws, & two feet on the bottom. As per the following provided photo, the stickers are on the far left, & the feet are on the far right. There is no need to remove the other two feet.
Under the stickers are two black tri-wing screws. These are larger than the ones removed from the sides. Under the feet are two silver tri-wing screws & they are the same as the ones used in the side. After these are removed & set aside, you will see the following :
Now with both of the black phillips screws removed from the side, & the two tri-wing screws removed from the bottom, we can pull off the face plate. Pull only slightly as there is a ribbon for the led as seen below :
With the faceplate completely removed, we can now pull off the black surround for the game ports. The faceplate covers the black surround just eough to prevent it's removal prior to the faceplate.
