Spudger

$2.95

Product code: IF145-002
Apple Part #: 922-5065

Product Overview

Safely poke and pry just about anything.

A spudger is a tough antistatic tool that can be used for a variety of purposes when repairing electronic devices. The 5" tool is made of nylon and has one flat end and one pointed end. The pliable and antistatic properties make it ideal for working around sensitive electronic components without fear of shocking or scratching them.

The pointed flat side can be used to disconnect connectors, remove thermal paste from a heat sink, pry off components, aid in soldering, or just to unscrew a MacBook's battery. The pointed end of the spudger can be used to connect/disconnect components, hold objects for soldering, or poke something that requires poking. The tool also includes a notch for hooking wires.

We find this spudger to be the perfect size for most repairs. However, when you need a tougher prying/poking tool, we also carry our Heavy Duty Spudger, a more robust version of this tool. This product is included in a lot of our toolkits, but it's especially helpful in the Pro Tech Toolkit and Soldering Workstation.

Compatible with Apple's "Black Stick", Apple part number 922-5065

My Problem

I put the laptop in a bag that had some sand vestiges on it (without realizing), some of it got on the keyboard. At first I tried to clean it, but it didn't go so well - had to end up changing the keyboard.

My Fix

Went well, took a little longer than other reports I saw. Maybe 5h total.

My Advice

When putting the speaker back (under the optical drive), make sure it's really tight. First time I opened the laptop it wasn't 100%, and it was interfering with the drive (blocking DVDs). Had to open it again and in the end worked. I didn't see much difference in the two attempts, so I'm guessing the difference it REALLY small.

My Problem

My early 2011 macbook pro battery swollen so I buy one here, and arrived to my house just two days after I ordered! it was great, even if I live in Mexico!

My Fix

It was extremely easy to replace the macbook pro battery, though replacing the iPhone 4s battery was a little difficult but it was on the backplate to blame, even though I replaced it in less than 20 minutes

My Advice

Always keep an eye on your mail, if there's a problem ifixit team will contact you there ;)

My Problem

Boot to gray screen Apple troubleshooting list followed down to replacement of PRAM Battery after multiple other solutions.

My Fix

Very smooth after finding or buying missing tools from local hardware and iFixit.

My Advice

iFixit directions (https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/iMac+Intel+...) are very accurate but two suggestions:

1) the front iMac glass requires suction or other upward force to remove it, but the glass itself is very light. Be careful not to pull it off and lose control of it.

2) After removing 12 Torq screws, I didn't know how big the front bezel would be. I thought it might be just the thin rim of aluminum where the screws were removed. In fact, it's the whole front aluminum case down past the Apple logo, which is why the access door to the RAM had to come off first. A prior commentor suggested something about removing the bezel/front case instead of disconnecting the microphone cord. This is what I did and it is a great idea to avoid damaging the cord trying to take it apart.

My Problem

The fan in my MacBook Pro was making an awful sound.

My Fix

Repair was so easy, and the instructions were precise.

My Advice

I was surprised at the amount of dust which collected inside over the years. I would recommend having a can of air to blow out any dust before starting the fan replacement.

My Problem

I was streaming a radio program and could not reduce the volume. It would respond to any command including shutting down. It would not shut down even while pushing on/off buttons at same time. I tried to sync with blue ray speaker to no avail. Then the tablet powered down and I could not get it to restart. Hooking up the charger and holding in the on/off button for extended periods did not work, including holding down the volume button at the same time. As described by some of your customers, I ordered your tools and spudger to open the back and briefly disconnect the battery. When the tools arrived and I was ready to attempt the repair, I tried to power up my tablet one last time before opening the back. To my surprise the tablet started up. It showed a 4% power level, so I got my charger hooked up immediately to keep it from shutting down. It has since worked fine. I think the low power level on the battery may have accomplished the same thing as disconnecting the battery. In any case I am thankful my tablet is working and I have tools for future problems.

My Fix

Not needed.

My Advice

IFIXIT is a good site to get advise.

My Problem

Hard drive dying - intermittently not booting - I was able to clone drive to external HD before it died and used this drive as replacement.

My Fix

The repair went great. Your HD replacement guide was invaluable. It gave me the courage to go ahead (I am a 69 years old). My iMac is back.

My Advice

Step 4: I printed your picture of the front bezel and taped the screws next to corresponding holes to avoid confusion.

Step 11. I disconnected the LCD cable at the LCG display and not the board. The tape covering this connector is easily moved aside and replaced. The connector was stuck and was difficult to pull and disconnect - patience and persistence worked.

Small vacuum and compressed air bottle for cleaning inside.

My Problem

My macbook pro was very slyolwy

My Fix

Easy,fast

My Problem

HDD-failure

My Fix

Slow tempo about an hour. No problems and no mistakes, thanks to the guide of Brittany McCrigler: iMac Intel 24" EMC 2134 and 2211 Hard Drive Replacement

My Advice

The only thing that I didn't follow, was step 11 "disconnect the LCD cable by pulling down". I disconnected it from the lcd-screen itself.

My Problem

Liquid damage on keyboard

My Fix

With the ifixit teardown guide and the tools i bought on this website, the replacement was super easy and efficient! Finished without a hitch!

My Advice

Highly recommending ifixit tools and teardown instructions, read before you start fixing! Good luck!

My Problem

Trackpad was acting cray-zay - cursor would jitter and jump around, open mission control (3 finger swipe gesture), randomly scroll (2 finger gesture) etc.

Confirmed it was only the trackpad by using a mouse and turning the trackpad off. No known spills and the battery wasn't bloated.

My Fix

Easy peasy. Took ~30-40 minutes to replace the trackpad, dust out the inside, swap in a SSD, and pop some new ram in. Machine is like new.

My Advice

Check the clicking action on your trackpad once you have it screwed in place and before you reassemble anything. There's an adjustment torx screw on the front facing underside of the trackpad. In my case, the trackpad was just flopping around not clicking and I had to tigten the adjustment screw a bit.
