    Anyone here know how to replace the modem in an original clam shaped ibook? Mine recently cracked into two pieces making connection a bit difficult. Diagrams would be really helpful as well as any instructions. Thanks! Sorry for the bother.

    :D

    Its pretty simple actually assuming you know your way with a screwdriver...

    It basically just pops out after you unscrew everything, I'll find the service manual for it in a jip.[​IMG]

    Once upon a time there were things on Apple Support dealing with this, but for the love me I cannot find 'em!

    I did look, honest!

    Sorry for making a worthless post...

    Thanks, vniow...

    Thanks, vniow, thanks a bunch! :D

    Oh, yeah, and, uh, thanks, Chris! ;) Good effort... :D

    No, seriously, thanks to both of you. It's very much appreciated. :D

    Just be very careful, and keep track of the screws. I've taken apart the same iBook 3 times (HD upgrade, then the upgrade died, so I replaced it, and something else...)

    Well, I have a screw that I have no idea where it goes.

    I'm surprised your iBook is still running. Mine has pretty much bit the dust. It still works, but it's on and off...

    I'm pretty surprised too.

    I have once tinkered with it a couple of years ago long after my Apple warranty expired, however I got cold feet before I really went very far with it.

    Actually, I just realized that the manual vniow sent may not have all of the information I might need. I am going to look to look for that one post I made a month or so ago about the hard drive question I had.

    Still very grateful for all the help.
    :D
