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.
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.
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.
Isckack didnt stick because of a Tag that was already on the Iphone
Buy the Nat
Friend spilled a soda on her Macbook Air. It would not boot. When I opened it up it was full of sticky brown goo as seen in first photo.
Once the tool arrived opening the case was a breeze. I wish I had paid more attention to what I ordered. I ordered just the t5 pentalobe "bit" not the handle haha. Live and learn. I just used my manly grip and removed the screws. Unplugged all connectors, removed aircard and SSD. Thoroughly drenched with QD electronics cleaner. Let air dry for three days. Reapplied Arctic Silver to processor, reassembled unit, and fired her up!
Just make sure you order the right tool. Use a quality electronics cleaner, unplug all connectors and clean all contacts. Don't forget to clean and reapply thermal paste to the processor while you're in there.
