This tutorial assumes you already have your Wii disassembled. If you need to disassemble your Wii, follow the Wii Disassembly tutorial first. This guide is a continuation from there. This tutorial gives you a step-by-step guide of how to fit the I-Case onto your Wii, with pictures and detailed descriptions every step of the way
Fitting the I-Case will invalidate your Wii warranty. www.consolesandgadgets.co.uk takes no responsibility for any damage done during this process.
Step 17 Take the rubber stand from the original Wii case and place it in the equivalent position on the new I-Case.
Step 18 Place the metal plate into the I-Case.
Step 19 Place the motherboard into the I-Case, the Gamecube controller ports act as as useful guide for lining the motherboard up. Place the small metal clip in the position indicated by the arrow. Fit the heat sink into its allotted space and screw each of its four screws in.

Gently lift the brown catch (Arrow 1) and slide the ribbon into place (Arrow 2). Now apply pressure to push the brown catch down and lock the ribbon into place (Arrow 3). Now Connect the white cables in place (Arrow 4).
