Screw stripped on PS3 harddrive, how to YLOD fix?
I bought a ifixit.com YLOD fix kit, and everything went very smoothly until I arrived at removing the harddrive. The blue screw is stripped and I cannot remove the lower metal panel to access the thermal pads without removing the harddrive. I suppose my question is, can I commence with the heating/finishing procedure or will it be pointless/harmful? I've tried various methods of removing a stripped screw, short of drilling, but I feel that could be risky with such a delicate process.
Is this a good question?
