LCD screws are stuck on my iMac
I am trying to replace my hard drive. When I reached Step 10 of your instructions I have only managed to remove one of the 7 screws securing the LCD to the rear case. I have bought all the tools from you so have the correct kit. Please can you advise me what to do as I'm worried I'll chew the heads if I go on. All 7 appear to be completely stuck and the Torx 8 screw driver just turns within the head.
Any solutions would be welcome, other than spraying WD40 on them which I know would damage the plastic in which they sit. I also tried elastic bands but to no avail.
Check to see that your T8 driver is really a T8. If the screws are to tight for you try a driver with a larger diameter handle to give you more torque. When I find screws to tight for mr I use the driver out of this kit: Essential Electronics Toolkit
