Here is a teardown of SanDisk’s latest. The disassembly was straight forward being that the housing was held together by plastic clips on each side. Once inside, the removal of the LCD is just a matter of releasing it from a set of clips.
This may not be something you want to do for fun since it may not go back together as tight as it once was. So I would urge you to only use this guide as a repair reference if you are going to take the Fuze apart. Otherwise please enjoy this journey into the depths of the Sansa Fuze’s internals.
Step 1: Pry open and pop the clips. Please note that the bottom two clips are held in with a little bit of rubbery glue. Don’t rip the face off too quick since there is a ribbon cable you need to disconnect.
Step 2: Remove ribbon cable from face plate. Lift the face off and flip the brown ribbon release flap on the connection.
Step 3: Remove two screws from PBC.
Step 4: Remove LCD by releasing the 4 clips on each side.
Step 5: Remove LSC ribbon cable.
Step 6: Remove battery. Battery is double stick tapped to the back plate. Just pry under it and it will pop out.
Step 7: Remove PBC by lifting on the left side first as to work around the on off switch.
