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

Charger would act sporadically. Sometimes charging and sometimes not, sometimes depending on position of the cable. Laptop would heat up above the "esc" key (approximately where the I/O board is). Battery life was non-existent.

My Fix

So I replaced the I/O and battery and before that the top case. Real easy. Use screwdriver, unplug, rinse and repeat. iFixit's website could coach a 10 year old through it.

My Advice

My Advice: Always use IFIXIT!* (Especially for batteries)

I've been dealing with computers for over 15 years and would rank iFixit as top 20 tech companies I have had a great experience dealing with. Up there with Amazon and Google. Would've spent thousands at the Apple store on many occasion, but instead I give my business to iFixit in exchange for their knowledge, support, and great parts.

*except screws everything else they are kings... have purchased 3 batteries from various places and iFixit had the best one.

My Problem

The old card was not recognized by the system. The mac address was reset, the wifi board was dead.

My Fix

Open the xbox one until it was easy.It was difficult to fit the case. The exchange of wifi board was super simple.

My Advice

Follow the guide to replace your Wi-Fi Board.

My Problem

I still had the original battery from early 2011 and it was getting up there in cycles.

My Fix

Instructions were very clear which made the repair go very smoothly.

My Advice

Don't over-tighten the tri-wing screws when putting the new battery in. I did this at first and it resulted in the battery being too far in the case to the point where it was butting up against the trackpad, which made clicking difficult. I opened up the case and loosened the tri-wings a bit and that solved the problem.

My Problem

My macbook has had more problems than I can count on one hand and each time I have taken it to the genius bar to get it fixed while it was under warranty. However within a week of the warranty expiring my hard drive failed and because it was my own custom upgrade I replaced it with the old one. Within 5 days that one failed too and I soon realized that the hard drives where not the problem but instead the cable for the drives was the problem. So I ordered a new cable from ifixit and within a week my macbook was running like new.

My Fix

The repair was super simple. I had already watched a YouTube video of a guy working in his macbookpro hard drive cable, so when I got the part I knew exactly what I was doing. However, there were tons of instructions made eassily available; had I needed them ifixit had my back.

My Advice

Replacing the hard drive cable in this is super simple, so simple that any monkey with a screw driver could do it. If you want to save yourself a few hundred bucks by trying to fix your issue by yourself instead of letting the "geniuses" at apple work on it I deffinately reccomend trying this repair your self. I will say though that ifixit reccomeneded that I order a spudger and I said for $2, why not? It was however nearly useless and is already nearly broken. It is by no means a required tool for this job.

My Problem

For over a year, I've been seeing the 'Service Battery' message on my laptop. The power was running down fast enough that I needed to carry the power cord with me, everywhere I went. So, I decided to make my life easier, by finally replacing the battery.

My Fix

Once I had the right screwdriver (P6) this was the simplest of repairs. Once I had the back off the laptop, it was just removing three screws and one plug. The new battery connected easily, and with a little pressure, the new one seated in place. After that, it was just a matter of replacing the battery screws, and closing up the case.

My Advice

The spudger seems like a small thing, but it's nice to have it for holding back the tab over the last screw. It decreases frustration, more than anything.

The P6 screwdriver does fit, but you may need to press down more firmly to get the screw to turn.

I grounded myself, and took off my jewelry before getting started.

My Problem

Because I didn't wanted to buy a new one

My Fix

Labeled very hard tje repair went very well event though I0m not very good with my hands (hardest part open the ipod)

My Advice

Opening the IPod was a nightmare no advice on that just good luck for the rest just follow the instructions and you'll be well

My Problem

battery wouldn't' charge and had an "x" on it. New battery - same thing. Replace this part - didn't solve the problem. I guess it's just a desktop now.

My Fix

Directions were easy. Printed out instructions and taped screws as I removed them to the correct procedure on the paper. Too bad it didn't fix the problem. Took about 45 minutes. Some small tweezers wouldn't been helpful.

My Advice

Get some small tweezers and tape screws to the directions.

My Problem

Brand new Samsung SSD installed internally causing boot and software issues across the board.

My Fix

With the help of the HDD cable replacement guide on iFixIt, I was able to do the repairs in no time at all.

My Advice

Always be careful when replacing or switching out hard drives in the unibody MacBooks. The cables are fragile and will unknowingly break and cause issues.

My Problem

My 2011 MacBook pro needed more RAM to run smoothly.

My Fix

Flawless!!! Super easy with the instructions & pretty quick.

My Advice

Separate your screws!

My Problem

My Nexus 5 and Macbook took a spill unto a concrete floor from a railing about 5 feet up.

My Fix

The tools worked perfectly, the repair guide was perfect and everything came out perfect!

My Advice

Don't put expensive, delicate items on railings.
