Product Overview

Adhesive Strips for Every Repair

  • This complete set of replacement adhesive strips is specifically cut to fit 27" iMacs from Late 2012 to Mid 2015.
  • The individual adhesive strips are labeled to indicate their correct location as shown in the replacement guides.
  • The kit includes one iMac Opening Tool.

The unique design of the 27" iMac requires the replacement of the adhesive strips whenever the display assembly is removed. Fortunately, these adhesive strips are actually a foam tape, easily cut with an iMac Opening Tool. Unfortunately, the display has to be removed every time anything needs to be replaced or upgraded inside the machine.

My Problem

To replace my 2639 iMac (27" late 2013) HDD with Samsung 850 PRO SSD

My Fix

It went smooth, thanks to iFixit guides, videos, and tools

My Advice

Take your time to plan and prepare for it, handle the screen with extra care, no need to completely remove the left speaker if you plan to replace the HDD; only moving it a little after unscrewing it will do the job.

My Problem

to replace my 27" iMac 1TB HDD with Samsung 850 PRO 512 SSD

My Fix

It went perfect; thanks to iFixit guides and videos

My Advice

take your time to prepare for this, a clean area and quiet place will help a lot. handle the screen with extra care, and there's no actual need to remove the left speaker completely if you just intend to replace the HDD with an SSD

My Problem

ssd replacement

My Fix

great

My Advice

be careful

My Problem

HDD was failing. Decided to replace it with an SSD.

My Fix

Everything went smoothly in terms of the hard drive replacement in my iMac with one notable exception. I cracked the display while removing it. This was entirely my fault, though. iFixit's tools and tutorials were fantastic. Highly recommend if you're comfortable working on your own system. Just be careful prying up that display!

My Advice

As mentioned above.

My Problem

Not a problem per se, unless you consider slow program load times a problem. Just wanted to add an SSD to create a fusion drive with the existing 1TB platter.

My Fix

The whole process took about 2.5 hours, which includes a test boot before putting the screen back on permanently. The hardest part was getting the screen off completely; the bottom edge did not want to cut free so I started the process with it still attached and propped back against the stand. About 15 minutes in it let go, but I caught it before it fell anywhere. The rest was pretty easy following the iFixIt directions.

My Advice

Have good work area prepped and have a headlamp handy if you have one (especially if your room lighting isn't great).

My Problem

My HDD started failing, so I decided to replace it with a SSD.

My Fix

Went well. The detail of the walkthru is excellent.

My Advice

One hiccup, which was my fault. Step 14 suggests removing the adhesive backing from the strips on the chassis, but I decided to try to leave these on as I was positioning the screen in Step 15. After that bottom adhesive had made good contact, I found that the two vertical strip backings (#13 and #16) could not be fully removed! I did what I could to remove as much as possible, but there still exists a couple centimeters of backing entombed between the screen and chassis. This seems to pose no functional problem, and is not even cosmetically visible, but it was irritating trying to fish out backing during the most critical part of this repair (holding the screen high enough to reconnect cables). Overall, would do again.

My Problem

I bought my iMac with only the platter drive because the SSD options were so expensive. After dealing with the slow drive for a while, I found a 256 gb PCIe hard drive on eBay.

My Fix

The guide was spot on. The only hard part of this repair is the screen removal. The directions are clear though, and the removal went perfect. The rest of the steps are basic, and anyone could do them. In fact, anyone could probably remove the screen. It is just stressful because it feels fragile and it is an expensive piece of electronics.

My Advice

I didn't buy the foam iMac pad to hold up the enclosure with the screen removed. I just laid it down on a soft surface. It worked just fine.

My Problem

The fan on my late 2012 iMac was rattling.

My Fix

Just like the video and directions said, everything went really smooth.

My Advice

The toughest part was lifting the display, it's tough but start to lift it from the top to the bottom and it'll help. Also the glue at the bottom of the display was tough too, had to use a knife.

My Problem

Platter drives are so 2010. Bought myself a 500GB EVO 850 SSD to sit along side the 128GB Blade SSD already installed.

My Fix

Cutting the glue around the screen was tricky (I did not have the pizza cutter tool), and I would recommend another set of hands at some points. The rest of the process was straight forward.

My Advice

Take your time with aligning the screen back up to avoid disappointment.

OEM adhesive strips are a must.

Pizza cutter tool handy but not necessary.

Take your time!
