My problem was an object that had been lodged in the drive - in fact, I didn't need to replace the drive. I successfully followed thru step 19, and at that point, I was able to extract the foreign object through the gaps in the disc housing. Then I reversed the steps through to the start and everything is working again.

I used this to access the drive area where I successfully identified and removed a plastic toy 50p coin my 2 yr old had carefully inserted in it; The Wii works again now

I am v gratefuil for these excellent instructions

And a tip - use a computer/laptop to view; an iphone was a wee (Wii?) bit too small!
