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 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

So, get the battery out and replaced. Keyboard worked for about half a day. red light flashing...

put the keyboard in a window to get direct sunlight charge. Holds a charge (green light) for about one day. now I'm back to flashing red light.

Any suggestions?

My Fix

went well, except that the battery wont charge.

My Advice

Make sure to orient the battery correctly. and when disposing (i.e. recycling it, make sure to put tape over both sides to prevent runaway overheating due to shorting out)

My Problem

Lightning Connector failing to charge intermittently.

My Fix

This was the 2nd lightening port repair I have had to do. This was much easier than the same repair on the 5s I repaired before. Again, I also believe it is not necessary to take out the battery. However you need to unplug it from the logic board. Turns out the Lightning port was not faulty. One of the two 3.4mm screws was loose and the port was moving around inside. I went ahead and changed it out anyway since it will probably fail sooner or later.

My Advice

Don't remove the battery. Just take care to tuck the adhesive tab for the battery back with an exacto knife while seating the new Lightning port. Make sure you plug a Lightening cord in to the Lightening Port and headphones into the headphone jack once you have the new part in place to make sure it lines up correctly. This really helps to get the part in the right place.

My Problem

At some point of time I pulled out my Macbook and it would not boot showing the "no bootdrive"-sign. After checking the drive via an external sata to usb plug and checking the internet for this issue i found out there are people fixing this problem with a new cable. Which is exactly what I did too.

My Fix

Following the Guide and already having undone most screws in my Macbook I had no real problems changing this cable. As I saved 10€ I had to change the bracket to the newer cable which took me some time fiddling around with the small cable and connector for the led on the bracket.

My Advice

The part of this cable which goes to the bracket has adhesive on it. The best way to put it in so it doesn't curve (it seems longer than it should be) is by starting at the side where it screws into the body and pushing it with a spudger into the corner. If you follow the cable to the bracket you should be fine.

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.
