Which iBook is this?

If it's a 12" iBook G4 then look here (http://www.geek.no/__dill/iBook.sitx) (Don't know if it's accurate with the newest Rev.)

But don't tell anyone where you found it ;)

If that file from Thrawn's post does not help you, I'd recommend http://www.pbfixit.com/. They have great disassembly instructions, and I believe they can point you to the parts you need should you, well, need them. :cool:

In my opinion you are better off taking it to an Authorized Tech to do this job. You wouldn't imagine how many people I have try this then bring it to me in a bucket with all the pieces asking for it to be put back together.

I also recommend http://www.pbfixit.com/ it has great guides on how to upgrade almost every apple laptop i.e. optical drive, hard drive, screen, keys etc.
