Spudger

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 Classic Pro Tech Toolkit and Soldering Workstation.

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

How does one go about pronouncing 'Spudger' anyhow?

My Problem

My SSD drive stopped working and would not be recognized by the system. I would receive the folder icon with question mark when booting.

My Fix

The repair was fairly straight forward. The only issue I had was bending the cable at the spots where it has to bend to be screwed to the body. Once installed I put my SSD drive in and it recognized it right away.

My Advice

It would be nice if the cable was already bent in the spots where it needs to be bent so that the end user wouldn't have to hope that they don't mess something up.

My Problem

The original hard drive was too small making the computer very slow.

My Fix

Followed the directions without any problems. However, I once worked as an electronic technician repairing two-way radios, so I am familiar and comfortable changing out the hard drive. I thought that others without my experience would have a few problems. For example, discharging your body's static electricity; having separate places to put the different screws; working slowly; do not force anything; ribbon connectors would not be understood; looking over everything as you go along - including other areas. Most important is how to get your computer back to the same state as before. I spent some time researching this; I fear others may end up with a computer with an empty hard drive.

My Advice

Have two sets of instructions. One for computer savvy (hardware and software) technicians, and another very step-by-step for those brave souls who really do not know as much as they think. Include in the instructions little lessons on hardware and software.

My Problem

MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Mid 2012 fan was broken.

My Fix

Very well; very easy!

My Advice

No advice! Very easy fix.

My Problem

My daughter's MacBook was just not loading up or running smoothly. Lots of space left on hard drive, no bugs or virus ... reloaded the operating system, added ram ... finally read about the hard drive cable replacement option.

My Fix

It was easy. This is the very 1st time I have tried to repair any type of computer. I feel like a pro!

My Advice

Watch the tutorial video several times before you start. Make sure your work space is uncluttered, don't want to loose any parts ... have fun.

My Problem

Replaced MLB

My Fix

Repair went well.

My Advice

The lower right screw was slightly larger in diameter than the other seven 2.5 mm 5-point Pentalobe screws.

My Problem

It was fixable..

My Fix

Not bad at all

My Advice

One or two pictures were not good quality.. should be fixed

My Problem

Laptop fell slightly. Right fan started to whir!

My Fix

It was horrifying, but I did it! Woohooo!!!

My Advice

Don't remove the airport card or its cables, or the camera cable. You can slide out the fan without doing so, and I think it saved my airport card.

My Problem

Yes.

My Fix

OK.

My Advice

Yes. I had to de-assemble and re-assemble mac case twice, since first time I could not close the case completely (not all screws on step 31 - the trickiest of all) aligned initially.

My Problem

Cooked logic board.

My Fix

So far so good.

My Advice

Use an egg carton to hold the screws from each step, number each partition and keep a list of what's in each partition as you go.

My Problem

As soon as I tried to boot up my Mac, I would get this flashing folder with a question mark in the middle of it, and the computer would never boot no matter how much I tried. Turns out the hard drive was never being read because the cable was shot, so I just bought a replacement cable and it all worked out.

My Fix

Very straightforward! As someone who knows his way around the computer but not around the parts of the computer, I was worried that this would end up a disaster or I was ordering the wrong part, but sure enough it was the right one and everything went smoothly. I was very happy with the cable I bought, it arrived on time and everything.

My Advice

Just put all your screws somewhere you won't lose them and they won't go flying! I had an incident involving a 4-year-old, a balloon, and about 10 minutes of searching for a tiny screw, so I would use something to store them that can't be knocked over
