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

Initially my MacBook Pro Late 2011 failed to boot, it shows a folder with question mark on it. In internet recovery, the hard drive is not even showing up in Disk Utility.

So I thought the hard drive failed. Bought a SSD to replace the hard drive. Then I tried to install El Capitan on the empty SSD using internet recovery, target disk mode, usb installer. Non of them could finish installation. So I went to Apple Genius Bar, the guy said hardware test passed, but he still could not install the system on the SSD, it might be the SSD compatibility issue.

Upon further googling, I found out it might be the hard drive cable. So I bought an external SATA hard drive adapter to verify it. The system booted without any problem with the hard drive attached externally.

My Fix

It was actually not that hard, just follow the guidance and be careful with the fragile yellow sensor bracket cable. Use tweezers as people mentioned in the comment.

My Advice

Whenever you MacBook Pro cannot boot, consider potential problem with your hard drive cable. It obviously happens to a lot of people with a MacBook Pro mid-2012 to 2009.

My Problem

Left fan on a MacBook Pro - was very noisy

My Fix

Perfect /easy - iFixit instructions were fantastic.

My Advice

Check the iFixit list before you just click on the tools they recommend - they should also recommend an anti-static wrist loop. Also use an egg box or daily/weekly pill dispenser to keep all the little screws as you go.

My Problem

I had four screws strip their head. No fault of IFIXIT.

My Fix

I got a stripped head repair kit for Xmas and was able to get the screws out and then back un.

My Advice

Do not think anyone will have the problem I had but if you do get a stripped head kit. The tools from Ifixixit are all you need.

My Problem

My old MacBook Pro's battery was swelling out of the case and was a bit outdated.

My Fix

Replaced the swollen battery and pushed the aluminum back to its intended shape.

Kicked the RAM up to 8gb

Replaced hard drive with 1TB Hybrid drive

The whole process was quick and painless. The guides offered on this site are absolutely perfect.

My Advice

Save money. Instead of Apple charging you $100+ for labor fees, choose iFixit. Couldn't be happier.

My Problem

I had a 512 GB SSD and was running out of space. I called Apple to ask if they could upgrade it and was told it wasn't an option. I then called a local Apple authorized repair shop and spoke with someone who said they do it all of the time, it wasn't a problem, but they wanted me to bring it in to look at it. When I went into the shop, everyone seemed confused and didn't know what I was talking about. They said they didn't know how to order the parts, and to come back when the woman I spoke to was in. I instantly lost faith in them, and decided to do it myself after looking at the iFixit website.

My Fix

It was extremely easy and exactly as the website stated. I was done in less then 10 minutes with no problems. I restored from a Time Machine backup which was the longest aspect of the process.

My Advice

Sorry, no advice. Just follow the site's instructions.

My Problem

Battery not holding charge as long as when new.

My Fix

Repair went great. Instructions were right on. Not sure new battery is lasting any longer though. Will give it a few cycles and see.

My Advice

Clean the dust out of the computer while you have the back off. I used a computer air can cleaner.

My Problem

Needed to upgrade the SSD drive

My Fix

Great - The iMac runs like it is brand new

My Advice

Pricing and Shipping were hassle-free

My Problem

Battery life was only about 2, 2.5 hours.

My Fix

Amazingly easy! I was hesitant about opening up a Macbook Air -- I always heard how the battery was not "user repairable." With iFixit's tools and instruction guide, the entire battery replacement took only 10 minutes.

My Advice

Don't be worried -- it's much, much easier than you think!

My Problem

Won't boot up

My Fix

Order arrived in reasonable time & good condition. Prybars popped the case of Nexus 7 quickly & undamaged as advertised. Didn't find the quick & easy loose battery connection hoped for but tools were great. Will continue & possibly use other tools as time allows.

My Advice

Best advice may be buy a different tablet, this is not impressive reliability. Thanks to the internet for helpful advice & the link to necessary tools which can be more than 1/2 the battle in repairs like this.

My Problem

Tired of not having enough room for everything I have to store and paying other companies for storage.

My Fix

Repair went perfectly with your guides.

My Advice

I recommend your company to everyone. Thanks a lot for the help.
