How can I free the R/H rear screw on back cover that's *Loctite* held
I am about to replace the iBook's HDD. Have followed the paginated instructions successfully so far.
Now, at the Bottom Cover's rear R/H [long] Torx 8 screw I've hit the wall. My Vanadium T8 s/driver did shift the screw, but only so far, and with the entire assembly turning, the shallow screw head has been gone 'rounded' at driver insert, a double whammy.
There seems no way out, or in, and I am truly stuck having the 'captive' nut welded to the case retaining screw.
Any valid idea short of destroying my trusty iBook will be supremely appreciated.
I am sure that this is a very rare occurrence.I regret this lengthy spiel, but am at my 'wits end'. M'aidez, hilfe..
NB: The short center and rear L/H screws were both undone without any drama.
Is this a good question?
