This headphone jack and hold switch for the iPod Classic 6th Generation 160gb is mainly used to repair an iPod with sound from only one side or a jack that outputs distorted or static sound. If the headphone jack is loose or feels worn, replacing this part will help.
In rare circumstances, replacing the headphone jack can fix issues related to no sound at all, but it's more likely an issue with the logic boards sound chip and requires replacing the motherboard. This part can also fix an intermittent or non-working hold switch.
NOTE: The headphone jack for the 160gb iPod Classic model is exclusive to the other iPod Classic model jacks. The 160GB 6th Generation model uses a thicker dual-platter hard drive. Therefore the backplate is thicker and the headphone jack and hold switch assembly is flat instead of beveled like the other models using a single-platter hard drive and thinner backplate. The 160gb 7th Generation model does NOT use this part.

The quality of the replacements is not equal. Over the years we have sorted through, literally, hundreds of manufacturers to build an offering of the highest quality parts on the market.

'As the video suggests, the hard part is getting the case back off the iPod classic. Also, you will want to have some kind of contact glue available to reattach the connectors that Apple has glued to the case, especially the hold/lock switch. Mine has moved and the lock switch does not work now.'
