We know that different jobs call for different prying tools. Often times, a stiff plastic card is just the thing for slipping into the tight nooks and crannies of a device, such as an iMac. Do not use a credit card, as the raised numbers and letters can damage the device.

Remplacement du disque dur original 1To par un 2To
Ayant suivi le guide iFixit, tout c'est bien passer.
Seul petit soucis rencontré : Le Décollage de l'écran en partie basse. Une fois soulevé il n'est pas si simple de le décoller. Le passage de la carte plastique pour "couper" la colle existante n'est pas vraiment efficace. J'ai été obligé de mettre un très léger coup de cutter pour couper la colle.
Au recollage de l'écran, le reposer presque en parallèle au support, mais ne poser d'abord que la base de l'écran (attention pas complètement parallèle pour ne pas coller les trois autre cotés avant branchement des nappes de l'écran). En cas d'une repose trop verticale il reste un petit espace entre le verre et l'alu en pied d'écran et donc un léger décalage de l'écran vers le haut après rabattage pour collage complet.

Broken screen, bad home button , and digitizer not sensing fingers.
Well the install went ok up till I plugged in digitizer. Digitizer end of ribbon plug fell apart. I have only found one plug, but company will not sell me plug. They will install it though. Grrrr! Hey ifixit, can you sell me the plug??

We had an older 21" iMac bite the dust so we purchased a new 27" late 2013 build iMac but due to incompatibiliti
Apple has made it next to impossible to go backwards with the OS and it's been a total pain in the butt!
The process went very well and the directions from iFixIt were spot on! One word of advice... the new iMac is using "flash" storage not an SSD so there was really no need to open the unit.
But the process of cutting it open and sticking it back together isn't difficult at all, so don't be afraid to try it if you want to replace the hard drive on the basic machines that use them.
THE FIX: I used a hard drive dock with a spare drive I had on hand and install OS 10.8.5 on it. Then I booted the new iMac from that hard drive via the usb hard drive dock.
NEXT STEP: I used the Disk Utility app and erased the Mac HD flash storage, and then used my Mountain Lion thumb drive and installed the OS on the Mac's flash storage. The entire process took about 30 mins. and the iMac had zero problems running the older OS.
LAST STEP: I did a migration from the old 21" iMac using a Time Machine backup and "bam" all is right in my graphics world once again.

I teach an ipad repair class to a group of 8th graders. This order was just to replace some tools. We are going to give the isesamo tool a try. Our best tool so far has been a metal spudger. It has a triangular end an a curve spatula end. You sell one that looks like it but the spatula end is to dull to get between the glass and bezel. I hope the isesamo tool does the trick. We will repair a couple hundred iPads this year and your tools are indispensable.
We have not had a chance yet to give the tools a run. I am sure they will be just fine.

On Sunday November 30th 2013, I was doing work at home with my iMac EMC 2105. It was raining and thundering that day. I took a break for lunch leaving my computer on. When I returned, I discovered the hard drive failed. The Internet and phone services also went out. When I tried to reboot the computer, I heard the dreaded click of death eminating from the failed hard drive. I had backed up the important files on an external hard drive two week prior. However, the work done since I backed up the important files was essential lost.
On the Sunday before Cyber Monday 2013, I took the computer to the local Apple Store for repair. I was told the computer was "vintage" meaning the Genius Bar no longer provided repair service for it. I was told any computer that is older than five years is considered vintage.
On Cyber Monday 2013, the Internet service was restored (the phone service was still out). I logged on to the Internet and did a search for a do-it-yourself-repair kit. I discovered the iFixIt website and order a hard drive upgrade kit. I got free shipping because it was Cyber Monday. Yeah!!! I actually ordered the wrong kit for the computer because I didn't check the EMC number on the computer.
On Friday afternoon December 4th 2013, the hard drive upgrade kit I ordered arrived. I didn't do anything with it immediately, because it was so late in the day and I wasn't feeling all the well that day. I was thinking better not to work on the computer when I have a head cold. The next morning, I woke up and felt considerably better. That's when I found out about the EMC number on the computer not matching the hard drive upgrade kit I ordered. I decided to go ahead with the upgrade anyways.
In reading the online instructions, I noted that the first step is to hold down the power button for twenty to thirty seconds without the computer plugged into power and thereby discharge the internal capacitors. At that point, I decided maybe the reason the hard drive failed is because somehow the thunder storm charged the internal components of the computer and speculated that discharging the internal capacitors might resolve the problem. After discharging the internal capacitors, I decided to try to start the computer with the old hard drive one last time. I did so, the old hard drive worked, and the computer booted up. I immediately backed up to an external hard drive all the work I had done over the two weeks preceding the hard drive failure. Yeah!!
If the iFixIt hard drive upgrade kit will work for the computer I have, then I am going to keep the hard drive upgrade kit. If not, then I will look into the possibility of exchanging the hard drive upgrade kit for a kit that is appropriate for the computer I have.
If you have files containing data about important work stored on the hard drive of your computer, don't take a chance. Backup the files to an external hard drive frequently.
If your hard drive fails during a thunder storm, try the following procedure before resolving to upgrade the hard drive. Wait a while. Unplug the computer from power. Depress the power button for twenty to thirty seconds to discharge the internal capacitors. Plug the computer back into power. Depress the power button on the computer. See if the problem with the hard drive resolves itself, before resolving to upgrade the hard drive.
