    I need to get at the hard drive in a dead 2002 iMac G4 (the "dome" type). Can anyone point me to a disassembly guide anywhere online? I've taken the bottom plate off, but if there's an easy trick to separating the monitor from the base before you do that, I'd like to know :cool:

    Good luck! (dont forget to get some thermal paste, very important:).)

    Thanks alienx :cool:

    I see that you *don't* separate the monitor first, you just have to work with it attached to the base. Thanks Apple :rolleyes:
