Use this guide to completely strip down your motherboard. Before reattaching the CPU and GPU heat sinks, be sure to apply a new layer of thermal paste.

Grasp the hard drive assembly and press the release button while lifting its front edge.
  • Grasp the hard drive assembly and press the release button while lifting its front edge.

  • Remove the hard drive assembly from the top vent.

WARNING: Just replacing the drive will not make it work correctly. Microsoft has married the drives to the motherboard. Hence, in order to get full operation out of the drive you'll have to perform more steps not listed here. Search in the FAQ on this specific topic for more details. Otherwise, before buying a new drive, try cleaning the inside of the old one and/or replace the belt involved in opening and closing the drive door.

  • Stand the console vertically with the bottom edge facing up.

  • Throughout the following opening procedure, the finger of an Xbox 360 opening tool can be used in place of a spudger.

  • Insert the flat end of a spudger or the edge of an Xbox 360 opening tool into the small gap at the front edge of the bottom vent.

  • Pry the front edge of the bottom vent away from the faceplate.

You can avoid this step by pulling the front cover off. Just make sure you don't break the springs for the USB bay area.

The small (metal) women's hair clip is best for un-latching the tabs. The screw drivers just make the holes bigger.

  • Lift the optical drive assembly out of the metal casing.

Be careful not to lose or break the two teeny metal clips securing the optical drive assembly snugly to the metal casing on either side of the drive's front face. I used a spudger to press in the topmost tines on these clips because they were catching on the drive and bending up. The clips should stay on the metal housing, not come off with the drive.

Super easy as long as you have that tool and follow the directions. Having never opened the xbox before I was able to do this in 15 min. And im sure now that I know how to do it, next time will be even quicker.

Thanks for the great instructions!

Lasher M - Yanıt

Do Step 35 first (remove the fan connector from the motherboard), otherwise as you pull the fans forward out of the metal bracket you risk stressing the connector's attachment to the motherboard (because the fans will press against the connector as you pull them forward).

Vaughn Baker - Yanıt

There are small black feet on the bottom of the fan assembly, You can push up from the bottom of the case if needed.

  • Lift the dual fan connector straight up from its socket on the motherboard.

  • Insert the tip of a small flathead screwdriver between the X clamp and its retaining post on the heat sink.

  • Pry the X clamp away from its retaining post until it is lifted above the small groove cut into the retaining post.

Place a piece of cardboard on the motherboard to protect it from scratches in case the screwdriver slips.

Aaron - Yanıt

The instructions on how to remove the x clamps are insufficient. I had a great deal of trouble with them. The small flathead screwdriver included with the kit is too small and weak to do the job. I ended up Googling other how-to's. I used a larger screwdriver and FINALLY popped them off, however as careful as I tried to be in the process I accidentally damaged a few traces around the screw hole. Repair was a failure, still have 3 red lights. Waste of time and money.

sbrasfield1 - Yanıt

Why the heck would you suggest using a screwdriver to release the x-clamps from the motherboard, knowing that the screwdriver could slip and damage some of the traces on the motherboard!? Didn't see the comment about placing a piece of cardboard on the motherboard to prevent scratching until I had already screwed up my Xbox. How hard would it be for iFixit to develop a tool to easily remove the x-clamps like they did to open the Xbox? I wanted to do this to prevent any possibility of overheating, and went from a working Xbox to a dead one because of this bad step. Definitely took my view of iFixit down a notch, will be much more hesitant to recommend their tools and guides after this. Would like a refund but I know that's not going to happen. Super ticked!

fdwboy - Yanıt

Same thing just happened to me, the tiny screw driver they say to use has next to 0 leverage to get it off. Now my repair kit is useless cause I physically removed some of the bits because my screwdriver slipped.

Forren -

I found that inserting a sprudger between the X clamp and retaining post and turning while lifting worked well without damaging the board

Patrick Kremer - Yanıt

The tool provided in the kit is completely incapable of performing this step (prying the X off the post).

Ben Mulligan - Yanıt

I had no problems using the tools provided in the RROD kit. Patience is key, also pay close attention to the pictures referenced in the guide, they are incredibly helpful.

Adam Hall - Yanıt

I originally had a lot of issues prying them up; I was really worried about accidentally scratching the board. The instructions don’t seem fully adequate. Instead, first pry all four corners as high up as possible, pointing the screwdriver towards the center of the X clamp. If you pry them practically horizontally, then it makes the whole process a lot easier. Then work individually, pushing each corner slowly outwards and upwards, putting the screwdriver in from above (not the side as step 42 shows, too dangerous) into the small space between the screw and the X. Be careful at this point, just in case. Also, DON’T use the small flat head screwdriver provided; it’s too tiny to get proper leverage. I used 1/8 in. See this tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pHzEV3c_...

Sophia Vera - Yanıt

  • Insert your screwdriver parallel to the motherboard between the X clamp and its retaining post.

  • Twist the screwdriver to fully release the X clamp from its retaining post.

  • Repeat this process for all four corners of the X clamp.

  • When removing the last corner of the X clamp and holding the motherboard upside down, be sure to catch the GPU heat sink to avoid damage from it falling.

Yorum Ekle

  • To reinstall the X clamp, first start by attaching two corners to the posts on the heat sink.

  • While holding the third arm of the X clamp down against the post attached to the heat sink, use a small flathead screwdriver to pry the X clamp away from the heat sink post.

  • As you pry, press down on the arm of the X clamp until you "walk" it down into the retaining groove cut into the post attached to the heat sink.

  • Repeat this process for the fourth arm of the X clamp.

Is the x-clamp supposed to be reinstalled? It's not pictured in any part of the instructions after this point, so I did not reinstall it, and putting the xbox back together now is different than taking it apart.

amplifiedgir - Yanıt

The X-clamps are not reused. Since you install machine screws in place of the X-clamp mounting posts, you do not reinstall the eight screws highlighted in orange on step 41.

Andrew Bookholt -

  • Remove the GPU heat sink.

  • Before reinstalling the GPU heat sink, be sure to apply a new layer of thermal paste.

Outstanding guide! My system did not need repairs. I simply opened it and gutted it so I could clean the entire thing inside and out like new to help maintain its lifespan. There is a metal frame underneath the top portion of the 360 case. I was unable to get inside this gap to clean it and a can of air duster is not powerful enough to blow out all the dirt/dust stuck to it. Has anyone found a way to get under there and clean?
