Hi, for iMac 8.1 model A1224 with defect ODD. Is it really necessary to remove the logic board in order to replace the Optical Disk Drive, please? Or can i just replace that peace right away after removing the display. Thanks in advance, Kind regards, Donat Merlevede

@Joe - we do not, unfortunately. it is fairly tricky so we just sell the stand still attached to the rear housing.

Do you all have instructions that detail removal of the stand? In other models, there appears to be a latch button that you use a plastic card to remove, but I can not feel the latch in the 20" model. Thanks!

@Jose - it might be best to take it somewhere to be diagnosed. It'd be a headache to figure it out testing one part at a time.
