  • Opening your Xbox 360 any further will require breaking or removing the warranty sticker on the outer case. Your Microsoft warranty for any components not directly attached to the logic board will likely be voided by removing this seal.

Does not void the warranty in the United States according to the FTC that sent a cease and desist letter directly to Microsoft about this exact issue.

  • Detach the faceplate from the rest of the device.

It is easier to perform step 40 before 34 (unscrew the long torx screws to make the right case flexible)

  • Remove the two 5.6 mm T8 Torx screws securing the RF module to the metal case.

On my disassembly during this part, I found the T9 Torx to be too big and had to use the T8 Torx instead.

weitmeyerj - Ответить

The correct size is T8!

thomasforster - Ответить

I guess you need to check for your own size : I used the TR9 as the TR8 was a little too loose.

sirmyself - Ответить

  • The RF module is still connected to the Xbox by a large USB-type connector.

  • Pull the board directly away from the Xbox to remove it.

This step is not needed.

Wade - Ответить

It may not be required but recommended. As you move the xbox around you could break this part. Removing it and placing it in a safe place keeps that from happening.

junkyardjojo - Ответить

Is the rf module married to the mother board? Im trying to replace the piece but dont want to start if it is not compatible.

Is there a specific Optical Drive that Microsoft uses in these or can I upgrade my drive?

i took my drive out but when installed my replacement it would not work

davidgardner301 - Ответить

WAS thinking of possibly trying to repair my son's Xbox 360S, by replacing the optical drive, but after looking at all the spudger steps to get to the drive and then your comment that the replacement might not actually work... forget about it! I ain't going to all that work for possibly nothing... t'ain't worth it!

Anyone want a perfectly working Xbox 360S with a drive the spins game discs upon ejection? We've already bought a replacement, so this unit is for sale... name your price.

Luposian -

In regards to davidgardner301 comment there is a extra step they. Didn't show on this replacement guide in order for your new disk drive to work you will need to remove the origional board connected to thje origional drive that came with the system and soler that onto the new one its a tricky process however its a step most people over look

Without the origional board the xbox will not accept the replacement drive only because each disk drive is coded to work with tat soecific xbox only so your out of luck if you already. Tossed out your old disk drive

Eric Liu - Ответить

So I installed the drive but the thing keeps reading the games as dvds, hence; wont play them, why?

BigD29853 - Ответить

The DVD drives are coded to the Motherboard. If you buy the same exact drive to replace the broken one. You will still need to either 1) transfer the DVD circuit board OR 2) get the Firmware from the old DVD drive using a PC and then transfer it to the New DVD. There are website regarding this procedure if you want to look it up.

  • Turn the console over so that the metal case is facing up.

  • Remove the single 11.3 mm gold T10 Torx screw from the hole marked "G."

Could be preferable to do this step along with step #47 since the screws fasten the same plastic part.

  • Lift the fan duct off the fan.

  • There is a locator peg underneath the fan duct (top right corner of the fan duct as viewed in the pictures). When reinstalling look down the screw hole to aid alignment.

I have a 4GB Xbox 360 slim and I bought a 500GB hard drive for it. I pushed the hard drive in its place and after I heard that click, I pushed it a little bit more to be shure that it's in place. I noticed that the hard drive bracket (the slide that holds the hard drive) it's elastic: after the hard drive is inserted, it wobbles (maybe to prevent hdd damage when the xbox is moved).

My question is: how does the hard drive bracket work? is there a metal spring in its mechanism that allows it to wobble? Did I make any damage to it because I pushed the hard drive to be sure that it is in place? I don't want to teardwon my console to find that out.

Thank you!

Do I need to buy a new fan, or does this tutorial basically use a method of cleaning things out to fix the fan?

Luke Beeler - Ответить

A bit late I know, but if you’re getting this deep into the system, put in a new fan.

This tutorial was perfect.

Thank you Mr. Newsom!
