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

I was streaming a radio program and could not reduce the volume. It would respond to any command including shutting down. It would not shut down even while pushing on/off buttons at same time. I tried to sync with blue ray speaker to no avail. Then the tablet powered down and I could not get it to restart. Hooking up the charger and holding in the on/off button for extended periods did not work, including holding down the volume button at the same time. As described by some of your customers, I ordered your tools and spudger to open the back and briefly disconnect the battery. When the tools arrived and I was ready to attempt the repair, I tried to power up my tablet one last time before opening the back. To my surprise the tablet started up. It showed a 4% power level, so I got my charger hooked up immediately to keep it from shutting down. It has since worked fine. I think the low power level on the battery may have accomplished the same thing as disconnecting the battery. In any case I am thankful my tablet is working and I have tools for future problems.

My Fix

Not needed.

My Advice

IFIXIT is a good site to get advise.

My Problem

Hard drive dying - intermittently not booting - I was able to clone drive to external HD before it died and used this drive as replacement.

My Fix

The repair went great. Your HD replacement guide was invaluable. It gave me the courage to go ahead (I am a 69 years old). My iMac is back.

My Advice

Step 4: I printed your picture of the front bezel and taped the screws next to corresponding holes to avoid confusion.

Step 11. I disconnected the LCD cable at the LCG display and not the board. The tape covering this connector is easily moved aside and replaced. The connector was stuck and was difficult to pull and disconnect - patience and persistence worked.

Small vacuum and compressed air bottle for cleaning inside.

My Problem

My macbook pro was very slyolwy

My Fix

Easy,fast

My Problem

HDD-failure

My Fix

Slow tempo about an hour. No problems and no mistakes, thanks to the guide of Brittany McCrigler: iMac Intel 24" EMC 2134 and 2211 Hard Drive Replacement

My Advice

The only thing that I didn't follow, was step 11 "disconnect the LCD cable by pulling down". I disconnected it from the lcd-screen itself.

My Problem

Liquid damage on keyboard

My Fix

With the ifixit teardown guide and the tools i bought on this website, the replacement was super easy and efficient! Finished without a hitch!

My Advice

Highly recommending ifixit tools and teardown instructions, read before you start fixing! Good luck!

My Problem

Trackpad was acting cray-zay - cursor would jitter and jump around, open mission control (3 finger swipe gesture), randomly scroll (2 finger gesture) etc.

Confirmed it was only the trackpad by using a mouse and turning the trackpad off. No known spills and the battery wasn't bloated.

My Fix

Easy peasy. Took ~30-40 minutes to replace the trackpad, dust out the inside, swap in a SSD, and pop some new ram in. Machine is like new.

My Advice

Check the clicking action on your trackpad once you have it screwed in place and before you reassemble anything. There's an adjustment torx screw on the front facing underside of the trackpad. In my case, the trackpad was just flopping around not clicking and I had to tigten the adjustment screw a bit.

My Problem

I had dropped my laptop because my dog jumped on my lap and since then the right speaker sounded blown.

My Fix

I took the afternoon of, poured a glass of cold beer and sat down with the patient. Carefully I followed the instruction on the website through my IPad. Using the tools I bought off this site, I operated on my laptop. I took it apart, realized the right speaker was shattered, replaced it and put it all back together.

My Advice

It all worked out wonderfully. Do not be afraid to try to fix things yourself. Be patient, attentive and read out all the instructions before sitting down to do all the steps. It helps and you won't be surprised when everything is ripped open in front of you.

My Problem

Broken retina display

My Fix

Very smooth

My Advice

You can do it yourself

My Problem

The copper pin that carries charge to the battery burned out. The phone recognized it was connected to a power source but the battery would not charge.

My Fix

The phone works again so it went well :)

It was slightly more difficult than my last repair (battery replacement). The real trouble for me came when I had to reconnect the pin to (I believe) was the antenna connection. It's a very small pin and the metal ring in the female end, near the logic board, can bend/warp easily.

My Advice

The iFixit guide is a conservative approach to the repair. Disconnecting the battery and removing the logic board is not necessary (but is good practice to keep from shocking/electrocuting yourself or from damaging the logic board).

My approach was to remove the top cover, disconnect the battery, and remove the speaker assembly. The charging port assembly can be replaced after that. It's a quicker repair (took me 30 minutes even with the difficulty connecting the antenna jack) if you are confident in your dexterity with your hands ;)

My Problem

WIfes Nexus 7 was not charging fully and taking a long time. Research showed the mini USB was the problem. Ordered the parts and replaced them without a problem. Now it works great.

My Fix

Great

My Advice

FOllow directions!
