    so i opened up my ipod, planning to replace the battery and back. i can figure out where the spacers go and the rubber pieces on the sides of the harddrive were covered in beach sand. i took them off and washed them, but now they wont stay on. will the iPod be okay?

    Yeah, those are fiddly. But they're needed to cushion and hold the hard drive in place. Some adhesive to hold them in place would be best, otherwise even a small drop onto a hard surface could mean the end of your iPod.
