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

The fan on my late 2012 iMac was rattling.

My Fix

Just like the video and directions said, everything went really smooth.

My Advice

The toughest part was lifting the display, it's tough but start to lift it from the top to the bottom and it'll help. Also the glue at the bottom of the display was tough too, had to use a knife.

My Problem

A friend of mine has young children that were playing on their friends iPad and, after some elevated excitement, managed to drop the iPad. The bottom corner hit the ground and the digitizer shattered.

My Fix

The repair was initially difficult with the standard tools recommended. The plastic tools bend too easily with the shattered glass. After reading some tips from other users, I decided to give an exacto knife (slightly blunted) a go instead and thankfully it made a world of difference.

The iOpener worked well for me and the childrens friends are happy with the high quality product that iFixit provided.

My Advice

If the glass is severely shattered, use an exacto knife to pry out the glass, the blade helps cut through stubborn adhesive too. The glass pieces shoot off everywhere so I highly recommend taping up the glass first and using eye protection. Make sure there is no glass residue or chips on the LCD or surrounding the LCD as it will scratch and possibly burst the LCD if it gets trapped under the new digitizer.

My Problem

My computer didn't turn on. I took it to an Apple Store. They told me that this Machine is a Dinosaur. they didn't have the part and didn't gave me warranty if the part is not original.

My Fix

I start looking on the internet how can I repair the computer. Then I see a video on youtube. I place the order, the order arrives the exact day it say in the order. Everything in the box was in perfect condition. While I watch the video I was doing all step by step. In about 18 minutes I have my computer back and working perfectly.

My Advice

IFIXIT is very trustable. The videos are very specific on the screws, cables, everything. I am a Pastor and My wife is a Grapphic Artist, all our work was in that computer, was very frustrating when the people from MAC told us nothing can be done. Thks IFIXIT, we have everything back and working perfectly.

My Problem

Accidentally our iPod classic fell unto the floor and consequently the harddisc was broken. The best solution seemed to be a replacement of the drive with a CF-card. If there is any pride, you go for it on your own and fix it.

My Fix

To start the opening process I found it easier to use a kitchen knife instead of the plastic opening tool. Afterwards opening the iPod with the proper tools was very easy thanks to your thorough and clear instructions. I didn't think it would be necessary but I actually needed all recommended tools. It's been the first time for many years that I felt the need to take an electronic device radically apart like this.

My Advice

Everything worked out nicely until.... I saw the power cable and was meant to move the lid 1-2 mm. However I had a very strong image in mind of the good old jumper-switches. Remember the ones from the 80s? So I torn out the whole jacket leaving me with lots of little pins flying around. Quite exciting. In order to understand - if at all - what possibly could have gone wrong, I followed the instructions for the other cables and realized how delicate my actions should have been applied. It occured to me progress didn't stop 30 years ago.

Actually I'm looking on the internet for another iPod classic with a broken harddisc and it seems it happens quite often.

Thanks folks! You've got the grumpy old guy out of the woods - willingly hunting for more experience. Hope you all have a little fun with my story.

My Problem

My son had cracked his LCD and could not use his 4S any longer. We thought a $40 replacement screen would be better than a new $650 phone.

My Fix

On my first attempt, I got half way through the steps in the online guide before I ran into the flathead stand-off screw holding down the logic board. The kit I purchased from ifixit.com did not include the 2.0mm flathead driver needed for this screw, despite claiming that it came with all tools necessary. Since I was on vacation, I had no choice but to put the phone back together and wait until we got home.

Once home and with access to my tools, the repair completed without any difficulty. I love the ifixit.com guides.

My Advice

The instructions say you need a 2.5mm flathead driver, but this is too big. Make sure you have a 2.0mm flathead before you start. Also, it is super important you have a stable surface with discrete locations to store the screws from each step. There are so many screws and little parts that come out during this process, if you don't have a place to keep them safe and separated... you're going to have a bad time.

My Problem

Hard Drive was going bad and I thought I would replace the Ram and upgrade at same time

My Fix

Repair went well thanks to Fix it and the Guides

My Advice

I didn't take the motherboard out but replaced the Ram in place

My Problem

After many years of service the battery finally died.

My Fix

Followed the instructions on iFixit and the job went just as the instructions said it would. The tools I purchased from iFixit also worked perfectly. I will definitely use iFixIt again.

My Advice

I should have read through the instructions fully before starting, as when I got got the spacing tool in the crack I first tried to slide down the large back panel instead of sliding the smaller top piece up. It was entirely my error though, as the instructions were clear when I looked again.

My Problem

battery time was down to 15 min

My Fix

repair was done without any problems. Took about 10 min

My Advice

description is complete

My Problem

My sister had a fire in her apartment building, and her apartment was damaged by all the water that was used to put out the fire. Many things were lost, but thankfully her iPad still showed some signs of life. However, it did't seem like it was able to hold a charge, it was power-cycling on it's own, and the touch screen was not responding to touch. In addition, it was not recently backed up to iCloud or her Macbook. So I took it upon myself to attempt to see if anything could be done by opening it up and inspect if anything could be done to get her data off.

My Fix

Going slow, doing the research, ordering the parts, and taking it one step at a time using the online tutorial from iFixIt.com, the iPad 3 was able to be opened up, exactly how it was described. Detached the touch-screen interface and it appeared a piece of dust/corrosion was released, too. Continued to take the iPad apart and found some corrosion in/around the Logic board where the docking connector attaches which was cleaned with a damp q-tip and rubbing alcohol. Then when the alcohol was dry, took scotch tap wrapped around the finger, dabbed the components with the sticky side to collect any loose q-tip cotton strands. Verified all was removed, by holding it against a light, before re-seating the logic board back in the iPad. Re-assembled the rest of the iPad, and attempted charging and powering up. It didn't seem like it was able to hold a charge, but the touch screen functionality returned. It occasionally still produced a Kernel Panic, but with patience and persistence, I thankfully was able to not only get a local backup to her new Macbook, but I was able to verify that I successfully had a complete backup to iCloud. She now is able to acquire a new iPad, and should be able to continue working once restored from the backups. In addition, I will have an iPad to fix up on my own - should I find I have the time to tinker around.

My Advice

Take your time, follow the instructions, trust in the tutorial and the equipment, and acquire the proper tools from here, They came in less time than they initially had for the delivery day, and it was very helpful to have all the necessary tools at hand.

My Problem

I've used my laptop for over four years, using it for things like work, school, and entertainment. Being busy and needing this technology, I saw that she was dying more quickly than I imagined. She was stuck at 63% battery health with over 1,100 cycles due to restless nights and emotional breakdowns. She's been there with me from day one. I couldn't bear (afford) to lose her at a time like this.

My Fix

Easy. Peasy. A newborn once again (it changed from 4.3 years to 2.2 years of age, which I don't think matters). My boyfriend had little tools and did it himself in just under 10 minutes. He was my hero. He held my hand while she raised up from the grave.

My Advice

Turn off your laptop whenever possible. These babies don't last forever, and neither do we.
