XBOX One X - How to Get the Shell Off & On Again

This is a really short video that you should watch before you attempt any repair of your XBOX One X / Scorpio console.

The console shell is fairly easy to get off, and will only take you a few seconds, but getting it back on can be a pain in the ass.

It took me a few attempts the first time I ever tried, so I thought I'd share how best to do it, so you don't feel like throwing the whole thing out of the window in frustration.

Then you can move on to stripping the console down for whichever repair you need to do.

Common faults with the XBOX X are overheating (yes, again..) blu ray / disc drive problems, and software / hard drive faults.
