Can't unscrew the last two screws
I tried to open my MacBook Pro 2012 (RAM change and replacement of the HDD by a SSD) using the iFixit Tools (Philipps #0), but I've got 2 screws that I can't unscrew (sorry for my english, I'm french). I tried slowly, but the screw didn't turn. After 3 or 4 tries, the "cross shape" is damaged, so I don't know how to get rid of those two screws... Anyone has a solution ?
Here is a picture of the screw (the other look the same) :
Hi zeaenarion, when screws lose their shape like that we call them stripped.
The proper driver for those screws should be Phillips #00, not #0, so trying that might help. Otherwise, take a look at this list of the 12 best ways to remove stripped screws, to see if anything there can help.
If none of those work, iFixit also has a Precision Screw Extraction Kit that should be able to get those out for you.
4 different sized extractors to help remove fasteners with stripped heads. — 50+ available at 19.95 each.
