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

My tablet was not charging. I bought new chargers and nothing. I took it to Microsoft and they told me sorry buy a new one. I checked around ordered the proper parts. I spent about 40 minutes swapping it out and all is good

My Fix

Good not long

My Advice

Should put step by step instructions with the order just incase you are repairing the device needed for the instructions online.

My Problem

My Girlfriends' iPhone 5 loudspeaker was broken. Since she usually uses speakerphone when on the phone, that had to change!

My Fix

The repair went well, The biggest problem is how tiny those screws are. My fingers aren't what you'd call dainty...

My Advice

Get a good magnet mat. Maybe one that has small raised divisions (or make it yourself) keeping the screws straight was by far the hardest part. Plenty of light is also good. The spudger is a must, and patience...

My Problem

I enjoy hearing my music loud. My MacBook Air not so much - i blew one of the speakers

My Fix

Repairing was a piece of cake, the guide was perfectly clear I din't have any problems with it.

My Advice

nope

My Problem

i'm very hapy it's 500 Go large now and I get both Yosemite and Mountain Lion

My Fix

The repair being the second time, went fine, thank you indeed for both the tutorial and the users' stories, whirh a wealth of details that help see things and watch my step clearer. Makes it interesting and delicate.

My Problem

The fan had a rattling noise and I decided to change also the hard drive if I was going to open my iMac. I bought a Seagate 2 TB hybrid disk for the replacement. The fan I bought it on eBay.

My Fix

Everything went fine, iFixit really helped me, thank you so much guys!!! All steps are clear and the strips fit perfectly on the screen. I was afraid that the screen could be not in the right position but my iMac looks like a new one! Now the new fan works perfect and I have a faster HD drive, Im very happy with the results.

My Advice

I recommend you to take a look to iFixit Youtube Channel. I read so many times the instructions on the web site but what really helped me, was to take a look to the videos. They are very well explained and will help you to understand all the procedure.

My Problem

Since the 5.0.2 update I got a bricked nexus 7...

It was not my fault, and I was out of warranty so I got pretty upset... and decided to go ahead by miself trying to repair it!

My nexus wouldn't go past the "google" logo, and after some online search I was convinced that it was a nand problem, and that the motherboard had to be repaired.

My Fix

I have a computer science degree, so I'm good with software, but electronics? ...well, I'm not good at it :) But I took courage and decided to do it slowly and precisely by following the instructions.

By using (some of) the teardown instruction and some online videos I was able with just a few doubts and trial and errors to extract the motherboard and the two webcams, I then replaced the motherboard by following the reverse instructions and... in less than 30 minutes I was already done and my nexus 7 was back to life in no time!

My Advice

Expecially if you are not so experienced about this stuff, do it slowly and genlty, follow the instrucitons and if you have some doubts find some online video to clarify it.

Replacing the motherboard is way easyer than I expected, so with a little patience you'll be able to do it with almost no effort.

Go ahead and: have fun!

My Problem

Dead hard drive in a 23" iMac

My Fix

It took me about 20 minutes. But, I am a stickler for perfection. Nothing exploded. Nothing imploded. There were no extra parts when I was finished. Opening up an iMac is both thrilling and terrifying! :)

My Advice

I didn't need the spudger at all, as recommended. I'm glad I had it and didn't need it instead of not having it and needing one. On the video, it would be infinitely more helpful if the shot showing what "wire" need to be disconnected was a wider shot so you can actually see what, and where, the wires to be disconnected are. That was pretty much a guessing game. Guessing on a machine like that can be a little scary until you put it all back together and...WHEW!...it works!

My Problem

My wife knocked a glass of water over which spilled onto part of her laptop shorting out the wifi/bluetooth card.

My Fix

Thanks to IFixIt the repair went brilliantly. They told me exactly what tools I needed to make the repair even offering me direct links to purchasing the tools if I didn't have them. They walked me through it step by step with excellent instructions and wonderful photos.

My Advice

The repair went exactly as planned. Read all instructions before beginning and take your time is the best advice I can give.

My Problem

After six years, my battery could barely hold a charge.

My Fix

The repair took ten minutes, and was super easy thanks to the tools I bought along with a replacement battery. The instructions for how to replace the battery were very clear, and everything's been great since!

My Advice

You absolutely have the ability to undertake this repair. It couldn't be simpler.

My Problem

Remplacement du disque à plateaux par un SSD dans un iMac 27" late 2012.

My Fix

Tout s'est très bien passé. Merci iFixit pour les tutos. J'ai juste manqué un peu de patience et fendu le coin en bas à gauche de l'écran

My Advice

Ne jamais faire effet de levier avec le "plectre" qui sert à décoller l'écran
