  • Easy-grip handles of just the right length for comfort and leverage.
  • Just the right amount of spring to pop out components and pry up against sticky adhesive.

  • Single Flat - with an extra long blade, great for iPad batteries

My Problem

The WiFi on my wife's iPad 1 suddenly died. No Wifi signal and no access points showed at all. I researched the repair and found a possible solution on the iFixit website, so I decided to give it a try and order the WiFi/Charging port part. I also learned that the display clips frequently break when opening the iPad, so I ordered a set and the Metal Spudger set too.

My Fix

I followed the repair guide and all-in-all, the repair went pretty smoothly. The disassembly went without a hitch but about half the display clips broke. I was just very careful not to crack the digitizer glass. During reassembly, one of the cable clips came off and the digitizer cable was not making a good connection and operated intermittently. I found another hint to slip a piece of mylar between the connector and cable and VOILA! Everything worked great. Thanks for the great guides, parts, and tools. The parts arrived VERY quickly too!!! Great service.

My Advice

Be careful with the cable clips.

My Problem

My Problem

My Fix

My Advice

magnifying glasses and plenty of white light. Watch several videos there are several ways to skin a samsung, I used parts of all the ones I watched.

My Problem

I used the Jimmy and Metal Spudger Set to remove the Glass from a Samsung S3.

My Fix

unfortunately the Cracks in the glass where all the way through the LCD, the the tools worked great. The Jimmy as used almost exclusively.

My Advice

Humm, well if your glass is very shattered take your time to get all the center glass off, it can be done without damaging the LCD.

My Problem

Wanted to speed up my iMac performance. The RAM was already maxed, so the only thing left to do was upgrade the what's drive to an SSD.

My Fix

It was pretty smooth. Much easier than I thought it would be.

My Advice

I think it's worthwhile to upgrade the ram & SSD on your older Mac before going out and buying a new one. Plus, the new designs are not upgradeable like the older ones.

My Problem

My Problem

My two year old dropped our first generation iPad. It has survived many drops through it's years of service. This time, right on the screen. A nice spider web crack to all borders.

My Fix

As a first timer, I set out to try not to break a single clip during screen removal. I broke every single one. I'm wondering if a feeler gauge set would help with clip removal. They are thin and strong. Other than that, the repair was a success. It took me about two hours because I realized I didn't have a Torx T5 and tried to find a substitute. There isn't one. With my tail between my legs I went to a local hardware store to purchase one.

After I put it all back together, I still had to put on the screen protector (which I was most worried about doing). I failed, horribly! Somehow, lint got in there and my install looked like corrugated glass. I removed it and pitched it. Oh well, my device works. I wanted to call ifixit to see if they would show me mercy, but then realized I would probably mess up another one.

My Advice

My advice;

Make sure you get the whole front panel as an assembly (screen, digitizer, and mid-frame). If your time is valuable, it's worth the money!

Watch more than one video! Get all the input you can before you attempt!

Make sure you have a T5 Torx driver.

Go around and make sure all the clip screws are fully tightened on the new unit, with your new driver (several of mine were very loose).

After removing the inside plastic film on the new screen, make sure you wipe it down with a lint free cloth (I didn't do this, so now there is a halo from the adhesive on the inside of the screen, mostly noticeable when the unit is off).

During screen removal, prying on the aluminum case could deform it slightly enough to cause the clips not to grab appropriately. This allows the screen to not sit flush when installed. I was able to fix mine. BE CAREFUL!

Make sure all the little rubber spacers are in place before you install the new screen. These prevent the screen from flexing during use and/or when holding the unit around the edges.

My Problem

I purchased this macbook for $75. It needed a new Screen.

My Fix

The repair went great. I removed the glass, cleaned all the glue off and decided to replace the LCD too. The LCD that was installed in the MacBooks in 2008 were not good. After reading and watching videos I ordered a new LCD (LTN133AT09-G01/G02 Macbook LCD screen) a New glass (OEM original genuine Apple MacBook 13" A1278 2008 LCD glass) Found some great tips and tricks on reattaching the LSVD cable and all went great. Before applying the glass I turned on the Computer to check the LCD and it was perfect. I put the Glass on perfectly and Have a Great New Clear Sharp Screen for this older MacBook. I was so Elated. This Macbook is fast and has a beautiful display.

My Advice

It took me awhile to get the confidence to do this repair. I had nothing to lose. I suggest you read and watch all the videos that are out there to do the repairs your self. Get the Confidence and GO FOR IT!

My Problem

I paid for $75 for this MacBook 13" Late 2008 Computer . Just needed a new screen that was cracked. Everything else worked great.

My Fix

I had watched and read all of the How To Do videos and said I can do this. So I decided to replace the LCD also since the one that was installed by Apple back in 2008 was not a good model. Well I paid $47 for the new LCD model SAMSUNG LTN133AT09-G01/G02 $40 for the OEM Original Genuine Apple MacBook 13" A1278 2008 LCD Glass. OMG! It came out beautiful, Crystal Clear and Sharp. Took my time, got the LVCD cable attached great. Saw a trick on a video that if you unhook the LCD LED LVDS CABLE from the mother board you can push it through the cover gently giving you about an inch or more to connect the LCD easier. Then gently pull the cable back and re attache to the motherboard. This little computer is fast and bright, Clear and Sharp. Very proud of what I accomplished thanks to the confidence I got from IFixit. Lynn

My Advice

Do it yourself. Take your time, Read, watch videos and you will get the tricks of the trade. You also need the right tools. So go at it.
