    • Gently pull up on the ribbon retaining tab. Do NOT pull on ribbon. It will slide itself out in final step

    • Desolder both points. Red (Left) Black (Right)

    • Gently press up on the PCB where you removed the two PH1 screws and rotate the board upside down

    • These drives are seasoned. Model 1.0 Xboxes were made in 2001 and nearly 20yrs old now. It's wise to re-lubricate them anywhere moving parts or friction is applied

    • If your drive door sticks when pressing the eject button, now is the time to replace your drive belt. Do this before applying grease to eliminate accidentally getting it on your belt

    • Apply grease to highlighted areas

    • Don't forget the tooth track, highlighted yellow, shown in previous step

    • Apply a liberal glob of grease along the tooth track and insert/withdraw the drive door a few times to easily lubricate the gears highlighted pink

    • With a cotton swab, gently clean your laser with 91% or higher isopropyl alcohol

Abschluss

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.
