Dyords you do want to go ahead and disassemble your device. Use these [[Topic:iPod Classic|guides]] for that. Then clean your board with some 99% isopropyl alcohol and a small brush. It is important that you clean all the connectors as well. Inspect them for corrosion with a magnifying source. Once you are satisfied that there is no more corrosion, reassemble the iPod. It is easily possible that the clickwheel has failed due corrosion from the water damage. Yes, go ahead and replace the clickwheel and the battery as well. This is important since the battery will eventually fail as well. The battery and clickwheel are inexpensive enough and a good starting point should further troubleshooting become necessary.
