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

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.

My Problem

Replaced built in optical drive with 250GB SSD drive. System was running really slow.

My Fix

It went well. Followed instructions and was pretty straight forward. Ran into a few hurdles....The screws can easily fall down into the case, which was very annoying. There is also a cable that has a very sensitive connector and after it had already ripped off, I read that you have to be very careful. Luckily nothing broke off. Putting it back was really tough as well.

My Advice

The only real thing that got me was the fact that no where in the instructions does it say you need to buy the adapter to fit the SSD into. Luckily I purchased one via Amazon and it arrived super fast. iFixIt also has one but it is pricy. I'm sure it's a well made one, but no one will ever see it.

There is also no info on how to ensure that TRIM is enabled. I had to go searching for a tool that did it. Cost me $10 for a simple application.

My Problem

My mid 2012 refurbished MBP was downright pokey, constant beach ball of death. It had only the stock 4 gigs of ram.

My Fix

I installed 2- 4 gig sticks with nary a hiccup. The guide was spot on (in some ways superior to Apple's own instructions) but did omit the suggestion to discharge any static charge by touching a metal part. That aside, the job took just 15 minutes or so, and went off splendidly.

My Advice

It's fun and empowering to take charge of my stuff. My advice, go slow, read the instructions before you start and believe in yourself. This was my first attempt at a laptop. Sorry I didn't take any photos.

My Problem

My iPhone 5 is one of the early models (Sept 2012) that have a manufacturing defect on both battery & power button. Apple acknowledged the problem and has a free repair program. My phone qualified for both battery & power button repair programs. However, Apple customer service denied "free" service, because my phone has a cosmetic dent in the frame next to the audio jack. Cosmetic = 0.3mm dent !!! See picture. Apple would still do the repairs, only I had to pay $279 + tax. Thank you so much Apple!! I really appreciate your help, but no thanks! So I decided to do the repair myself and involve my 5year old daughter in the project. She was thrilled :)

My Fix

I studied the guides & videos on iFixit.com several times. The information is spot on and the repair went great. The biggest issue was keeping organized and knowing each screw where it came from. The "Anti-Static Project Tray" helped loads. Overall, a very successful repair. Daughter was happy too to help daddy :)

My Advice

It was unclear to me wether the defective part was the power button itself, or the "Audio Control and Power Button Cable". The information on iFixit.com is also unclear saying 'it might be' the button or 'it might be' the cable. In fairness, you can't really know. So after replacing the power button, it sometimes worked and sometimes not. I then ordered and replaced the audio cable as well. This fixed the button fully. It now works every time and battery lasts about 2 days on average usage.

My Problem

Replace logic board; replace HDD with SSD; move HDD to optical bay; upgrade RAM.

My Fix

All in all, everything went well. Considering that this was my first repair ever, it took me much longer (4-6 hours) than indicated (40-60 mins). Also, during the repair I had to watch a couple of video tutorials on YouTube, because sometimes the guides alone weren't sufficient.

My Advice

To anyone who's going to do this repair, make sure you also get a 5.5 mm Phillips screwdriver. During the repair I came across a step which required this particular screwdriver, but I didn't have one since it wasn't mentioned on the list of required tools of the logic board replacement guide.

Furthermore, there is a Phillips #1 Screwdriver listed as a required tool for this repair, but I didn't use it since I managed to carry out that particular step using a Phillips #00 Screwdriver instead.

Also, at the end of the logic board replacement guide it says: "To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order". This is slightly misleading, simply because in doing so you would omit a very important step, namely to apply new thermal paste first. Therefore, I would advise to either include or refer to the 'Applying Thermal Paste' guide at the end of the logic board replacement guide.

My Problem

The battery on my Slate tablet was in its final throes, so I decided to take to the place of purchase - national chain of office supplies, which hall remain nameless. I hoped they could change the battery there even if I had to wait for them to get one in stock, or they could send it out. I couldn't open it myself because of the tiny screws. Well, the kid looked at it and said they couldn't do anything and if I sent it to HP it would likely cost more to have them service it than it originally cost. I didn't want to give up just like that, so I went back to the internet and after looking at discouraging videos that involved cutting and soldering wires Ifound you guys.

My Fix

I ordered the inexpensive tools from you and a battery from another site, followed the tutorial you have posted, and was done in less than 10 minutes. The battery is charging as I write this, but I can see that the job was a success. Between the tools and the batteries I spent less than $60, which is about a third of what the tablet originally cost, so I'm really happy.

My Advice

The experts aren't always expert, so don't give up. This job was a snap, unlike most of my hardware store undertakings, which usually take 100 times longer than I planned and require at least three trips back to the store.

My Problem

MageSafe was pushed into the body of computer ......

My Fix

It was a lot of steps and several very small screws to keep track of but the instructions were right on ......... my only fear was losing the small screws and getting them back in the correct holes ........

My Advice

I put the screws in a small container so I wouldn't lose them ........
