You will need to go to an Apple Store for this. Bring documentation of the original systems purchase (matching the cases S/N).

Apple uses a newer tool which is not even available at the stores, only the service depot has it. Apple controls this tool very tightly, it needs to communicate to Apple and be authorized. You can't even use the older tool with the newest firmware releases on the older Mac's either.
