BD Drive disassembly
To start of with the drive disassembly you should open the drive from within your PC
In my case the drive was a LiteOn - iHOS104 actually the cheapest BD drive available while I built my PC
Next you remove the 4 screws at the bottom of the drive
which allows you to remove the bottom cover, the front and the top cover.
This leaves you with just the technical components left.
Next you have to remove all the CIF cables and the belt driving the disk sled.
To get the main PCB out you just have to pull back one notch and then lift the PCB up
Be very carefull when handling the flat cables they can be harmed pretty easy
I marked the CIF terminals and the cables because I didn't know whether there would be connectors in the same size which didn't happen so you can leave that out.
To get the front PCB out you have to push the clamps gently and then pull the PCB including the motor out.
The last step is to remove the screws holding the the disk reading mechanism down to the plastics frame
there are just 4 screws holding it
Yay you finished the drive disassembly =D
The next part of this Project will be the preparation of the CD Changer
