This is the set that spawned the repair revolution. We have honed its contents to be both your everyday driver set and your go-to resource for all the security bits needed to open consumer electronics.
Each bit resides in a removable soft plastic block with five friends. The driver body is machined from a single piece of aluminum, with a ball bearing mounted swivel top. The flexible shaft is great for stereo work or other large electronics where all the screws aren’t on the surface. The drive adapter lets you use these specialty bits with any standard ¼” driver handle or most power tools.
When it comes to precision bit sets, there is no better kit. If you want something that looks as elegant as it performs, look no further than the wooden case for the 54 Bit Driver Kit. This case is emblazoned with the Fixers Fist, reminding all the world that we have the right to open our electronics. We believe that repair is noble, and so should you.

I'm an engineer and a client's equipment needed a 1.3 mm hex drive to get into it for troubleshooting. I didn't have this tiny size.
The driver kit is a joy to use -- everything about it is high quality. There are so many bits I doubt I will need any more, but iFixit has individual 4 mm bits for sale if I do.
Buy this tool kit! It's excellent quality at an unbelievably low price.

Battery was dead. SSD too. I also used my iFixitIt kit to screw my bike flat paddle pin that were missing.
Don't try that without the good tools. I have tried with the improper tools and I almost stripped the tri-wing screw.

A designer for the company I work with has an old Macbook that had a cracked uppercase.
The designer directed me to your site for instructions to replace it. I ordered the 54 Bit Driver Kit for the T6 Torx and Y0 and Y1 Tri-Wing bits. Other bits came in handy, too. I only needed those few bits, so I thought, but the entire kit is very useful. I've found other sets that I really want, but might just save up for the big kit. Lots of great tools in there, and I like the bag, which isn't sold separately.
When replacing the logic board, it helps to have a couple extra hands to make sure all plugs are out. I disassembled and reassembled the Macbook several times, and realized the Trackpad connector was folded under. When inserting the ZIF cable for the keyboard, leave the battery out. You will have better access to inserting it. The battery will be in the way. You will probably need to leave the hard drive bracket off, too. It affected removing and replacing the battery.

I spilled a small amount of coffee on the left shift key of my keyboard. The keyboard otherwise was fine except that the shift key was always ON. I looked up online and there was no solution for fixing the key. Compressed air, key removal and cleaning, nothing worked.
I settled for the cheaper solution of buying a Bluetooth keyboard of Apple. It was great but then I had to buy rechargeable batteries and I would often forget my keyboard at home, not to mention that I had to live with adjusting to typing on this keyboard (which wasn't as bad though because it was Apple's keyboard). Eventually I decided to fix it.
My fix was to buy a new keyboard. I did that from eBay. I don't think the keyboard I got was original but I still gave it a try. It worked.
My fix went well when I followed the upper case replacement guide. A couple of times though, I blocked some cables under the keyboard and I had put in all the screws! My keyboard repair was all complete until I came to the point where I had screwed everything back in place, only to realize my trackpad cable was blocked. I had to disassemble everything, expose the keyboard and unscrew the keyboard partially and take out the trackpad cable.
I used iFixit's 54 tool box and it was sufficient for the most part. I also used that as a tray after removing all sockets to expose the tray.
It will really help with frustration to be organized. Have someone there to cheer you up and boost you: if you mess up it is important to have someone to help you, and say they believe in you. My roommate did that for me.
I was initially reluctant, because iFixIt doesn't have keyboard replacement repair guides. The closest was the upper case replacement. So if you follow that guide, remember that you don't need to remove the hard drive and battery though it will help if you do. You also don't need to go through the guide where it says you should remove hinges for the display and all. A simple guess is to only remove and follow guide until your keyboard is visible completely ...
I also didn't follow the guide in a completely sequential manner, but remember I am someone who has opened his laptop before to replace its optical drive with solid state drive and replace its Bluetooth with newer Bluetooth to make it compatible with OS X Yosemite's features and I have also upgraded to 16 GB RAM.
An important advice is about the display cable, the keyboard cable and the backlight cable: just be careful with them, they go in parallel to the motherboard, and they may not go in all the way so don't push them. Just do your best. But you may break them if you try to push them inside the socket.
Also it's not that bad or difficult of a repair. I know I said my roommate cheered me on, but he only did it after I messed up!
Lastly, I booked an appointment with the Apple Store to check if my repair went well. They checked and approved. It helps and adds extra confidence in you. Yes they will check that for you even though you will tell them you did it yourself. They told me it would otherwise cost me 180 to 240 dollars! That will make you feel good about yourself.

I needed to remove the hard drive from an old iMac G4 and needed the appropriate tools. not only did the 56 bits kit provide that but i also followed the instructions on the iFixit website and Tada!!!! A project I have been postponing for years was completed in less than 45 mn!
Great. Only issue was detaching the cables from the HD. As the instructions indicated they are tight indeed!
Wear gloves. Those cable restrainers can pinch...

Controller was dropped on left bumper button. After that had to press very hard to get button to work.
repair went well. with the new driver kit and spudger. I was able to open the controller very easily with the help of the guide I found on the Ifixit site. Also found a tip on youtube on how to fix the problem.
Found out this is a problem on older controllers where the button gets compressed from all the mashing. by adding a small piece of plastic(in my case I used a small piece cut from an old credit card) between the bumper and the button using double stick tape or glue it to the analog stick inside cover is all you need to get a good connection again.

My iMac was overheating and making loud fan noises. After streaming 30 minutes of a movie, I had to turn it off and let it rest to cool down. I decided to search, finding out the computer has 3 fans that gets dirty with time.
It was my first time opening a computer. The fix was smooth and easy. After cleaning every single part, I put everything back together and the problem was solved. No more overheating, no more loud fan noises and the most important of all was that, I did it myself.
What helped me to do the job was the iFixit kit. Very important, try to draw a picture of the area that you are working on with each screw hole, placing each screw on the picture that you draw with transparent tape. Remember to connect all the wires and put all screws in the same order of your sketch.

Loose Screen Hinge
Not enough memory
Optical Drive Limited
Battery Life Nonexistent
Slow Hard Drive
CPU Temps were high
Tightened Screen Hinge
Added 16gb Ram
Replaced Optical Drive with a Blu Ray Burner (UJ 267)
Added 256gb Samsung 850 EVO SSD
Replaced TIM on CPU Heatsink with Gelid GC Extreme
It went really well! The ifixit guides made things a lot easier and it made the entire process a breeze. It took about a good 6 hours to do everything mentioned, but it was totally worth it.
Go slow and take time to be organized. I'm ruined hardware in the past because I was rushing or was forcing something to fit. Just go slow with whatever repair you are doing and visualize each step before you go ahead and do it.

Old battery wouldn't hold a charge.
The adhesive strip that holds the battery did come off as easily as expected.
I recommend heating the back of the case to soften/loosen the adhesive no matter what. If you are cheap like me simply fill a small sock with a handful of rice and microwave it for 1 minute and then place the warm sock on the back of the iPhone case before you attempt to remove the adhesive strips.
