Installing iPod Mini Hard Drive Cable
Step 14 — Hard Drive Cable
Peel back the black tape securing the two blue bumpers to the hard drive near the orange ribbon cable.
Slide the two blue bumpers off the corners of the hard drive. There is no need to remove these bumpers entirely.
Carefully disconnect the orange hard drive ribbon cable from the hard drive. Be sure to apply even pressure while pulling to prevent any bent pins.
If the cable doesn't come free easily, you may be able to free it by gently rocking the ribbon cable back and forth.
To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.
