Xbox 360 Complete Tear Down, Fix and repair video. To the point.


Alright today I’m going to show you how
to take apart an Xbox 360. To pop off the faceplate just kind of grip
around the edges and just pry up and away. There are a series of clasps underneath that
are holding it down. The side faceplates have two little notches
that you are going to slip some tools inside of…could be a screwdriver, could be a pry
tool, and it just lifts the edge of the faceplate off so you can grab it. Once you have a little bit of it up, there
are 6 clasps around the outside; three on each side. And what you’re going to look for is the
two white holes that are filled in and press in-between those two holes and that will release
the clasp. I’m using a pair of tweezers but you can
use a toothpick or a needle and you can see the little grooves that are popping up and
away. On this side you can see it just a little
bit better. Between the filled in holes, that’s where
the little clasp resides. I’ve gotten those three up and now the other
three on this side. Pressing the clasp in and then up pops the
faceplate. Now the front of the Xbox has these little
clasps that you have to lift up. Just using my little pry tool to wedge them
up. And half of the plastic pops off. Flip it over and then there’s a series of
latches along the back of the Xbox that you have to worry about. So take your little tool that you’ve been
using the whole time and press it into the little groove and that presses down a little
tab which releases the plastic. And you’ll get a better view here in a second. All you’re pressing on is that little niblet
at the end of the tab. But you can see how the whole entire tab works;
as long as you’re pressing it down it will release. Now the bottom of the Xbox will become lose
and you’ll see two giant X’s, how creative is that? There are 6 screws holding down the bottom
and they’re super long. So if you take out a screw and it’s not
super long, put it back in or else your Xbox will fall apart. Now here’s the eject button, just pulls
up and away from the Xbox. Now we’re pulling off the top plastic bit. It was being held down by those 6 long screws. Then the front face plate of the drive comes
up and off. Then the drive itself is held in by two cables. If you’re replacing your drive make sure
you get the correct model number of it. I believe there are 5 different manufacturers
and if you buy the wrong drive then it will not work with your Xbox. So make sure you get the right model number
when you’re purchasing that. Amazon has drives for pretty cheap. I will link those in the video description
below. This is the heat sink. It is being held together by these 8 screws
along the bottom as well as the metal plate held down by the rest of the screws. I’m not going to take apart the heat sink
today just because you have to re-put paste on there to help the transmission of heat. But I will show you how to remove the plastic
shroud between the fan and the heat sink. Then the fans themselves are just held in
by two little clasps along the top. And then they’ll slide out of the two little
pent slots down at the bottom. Then there’s a wire connector powering them
from the main board. I’m going to wedge my little tool down in
on the little latch and then lift up the little plug with my other hand. There’s some pretty cool modded fans on
Amazon that I’m going to link in the video description below that you can check out. They just shine with blue lights. I believe there’s any color…green, red…so
check those out if you’re interested. And that’s it. If you have any questions make sure to leave

  1. the back tabs don't release. They just go right back in as soon as I quit pressing on them. I don't have 8 tiny screwdrivers or 8 hands so in throwing this Xbox out in the driveway and buying an Xbox 360 E that works

  2. So outta the two wires from the disc drive one of them has an intermittent wires that look like they go with the fan it's been so long since I took it apart I can't remember how I was wired can you explain to me maybe they were jumping across the board

  3. Hi is thr anyway to remove the ledge that you said needed to push.without a tweezer?im stuck i have alrdy got it half open just cant remove the back

  4. Perfect, just picked up an old Xbox 360 for 5 bucks, everything works but the fans are noisy as hell. Your break down is the best I've found. Thanks !

  5. Dude, that video was great! I hate watching shit videos where they move and flip over and over while pointing too long over explaining everything. This is how youtube videos like this should be made. Thanks man. New subscriber just for that.

  6. So if my disk drive doesn't work I just have to buy another one under the same model number and it will work? Because i herd ill have to flash the drive :0

  11. the amount of xbox 360’s i’ve just thrown outside onto concrete and destroyed because they wasn’t working or not reading disks and just bought new ones lol could of tried this but meh

  12. Very nice, I'm gonna go fix my dads xbox now as it's over heating, 8 years of dust and new thermal paste here I come.

  13. ITA) Quando vedete le frecce verdi ( se non capite l'inglese) sappiate che liberano l'ALTRA META' DEL COPERCHIO BIANCO !! .. non ho trovato altri video.. quindi il mio avviso è solo x coloro che vedono e basta

  14. All that just to get into a fan-RIDICULOUS-should be able to open consoles a lot easier and components sgoukd be modular kits-easy to transplant drives-fans-power/graphics card/memory-currently only menorys accessible without all rigmarol

  15. It's almost impossible to get that back part off without a special tool. It's called the "repair tool", which comes with a t8/10 screwdriver. It gets those tabs down without breaking everything…

  16. the red ring of death is a very common problem of the xbox 360, but if you modify your cooler you can prevent this problem.

  17. Ive watched your videos for a while, so imagine my surprise when i look up a video for xbox 360 disassembly (needed to clean it), click the first one, hear the voice, and check the creator name.

  18. Wow love this video! Your voice is so calming and I admire the consistency and straight forward to the point details! Thank you very much

  19. I don't think you can replace the drive and have run games again… Because each console has a unique drive that enables it to verify and run games

  20. Hey mate I can't find those fan's anywhere! are there any alternatives for a White 2010 model fat Xbox 360? Cheers

  21. I thought something was wrong with my Xbox 360, but when I opened it there was dust everywhere and there was a few dead little bugs 🙄😂 the last guy didn't know how to clean and thanks for teaching me how to open it piece by piece 👍

  22. Hey, good video. Just took my ten year old xbox 360 out of the closet and cleaned it up with your help. I’m going to keep it out for nostalgic purpose. I think it will look good in my living room.

  23. So i learned today crackdown 1 & 2 is retroplayable, and after bying crackdown 3 and being so disappointed.
    I figured I'd play the old ones on the xbox one.
    But the 360 ate my crackdown 1, and your video helped me get the very first game id ever bought and played. Thank you, now i just need to wait for the games to get installed.

  24. Thanks zac/jery I can now open the case because of this video amd as a 16 yr old I can now succesfully open my xbox and broken xbox 360s and sell them for some muny!! Much love Britain mate!
