so i got myself an ipod video. its a long story how it came into my possession, but the persons car was about to be scrapped and they said that my dad could take what he wanted from it and i went spurlunking through it myself and found an ipod.:D it works fine, but the back is dented up and i can see inside it. if i bought a new plate for $8 on ebay, could i just swap them out or are there internals connected to the plate? also, i can remove the back myself easily, but do i need the prying tool to put the new one on?:confused:

thanks!:)

Specifically, opening the case back:
