  • This may take a bit of force to open up and you will hear a fairly loud click when the bottom cover detaches.

It says to place it upside down, but didn't you do so in the previous step? I've been trying to unscrew the screw with my screwdriver that I got from here and if I had to had the system right side up, I'm afraid I might've stripped the screw from all the force I tried to use to get the screw out that will NOT budge. It didn't even move the slightest after removing the warranty sticker.

incomplete guide, what replacement? the last step is taking the cover off but what about the disk drive?

Yegor Ilchuk - Replica

Yeah, where's the ending to this?

Ben Baptist - Replica

To remove the complete drive you have to remove the motherboard. with the motherboard removed some of the above steps may not be necessary.

This guide is useful if you just need to remove disc or clean laser.

Freddie Parsons - Replica

when replacing do you have to swap a board like the PS4’s of the past?

Frank Ferrante - Replica

Nope, on the ps4 slim the optical drive is not married to the motherboard so any drive as long is the same model will work with any motherboard

Joshua Sites -

What drive is used for replacement? Anyone have a link?
