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

Screen has lines running on it, tells me the connection of the display module has problem

My Fix

Perfect, iSlack is useful but still need help

My Advice

Its very tight for iSlack to open in first trial, you need to still use the suction cup a bit, but be careful not to be too 'excited' on the opening process, once it shows movement, switch back to iSlack to prevent killing your precious Touch ID

My Problem

The 5400 rpm drive that came with the Mac Mini was too slow.

My Fix

Using your clear step-by-step instructions with photos, I was able to take the machine apart, replace the drive with a Samsung 850 Pro, and put the machine back together all in the same evening.

My Advice

I was initially concerned about the small size of the machine, but one should have no fear. With your instructions it's really simple!

My Problem

Exchanged the motherboard of a Macbook Air - late 2010. The Apple repair shop in Norway said the motherboard had to be replaced and asked for approximately 1000 USD to do it :-(

My Fix

The exchange seemed to work out nicely with a motherboard bought on eBay. But the Macbook Air is still dead. Have given up now after a loss of 200-300 USD. Following the procedure provided by iFixit was fun however - excellent instruction material.

My Advice

Purchase a new Macbook Air up front and do not attempt to repair it yourself. Do not purchase electronics spare parts on eBay. :-( I have now a brand new Macbook air and have attached the old SSHD enclosed in an OWC Envoy (OWCMAU3BENVOY) unit via an USB cable.

My Problem

Accidental water damage seeped into the keyboard. I know I can get this for cheaper on other websites but time was of the essence so I put in more cash than I would have for this fix. I've used this machine since 2009 and did not want to get a new laptop so I decided to perform the repair manually.

My Fix

Amazingly I did not break anything even though this was my first time fully disassembling this laptop. Thanks to the ifixit instructions.

My Advice

When performing this repair be *very* careful not to break anything and patience is key. I spent 4 hours doing this repair. Also check out Quick File Rename, the best utility to rename files and folders! :)

My Problem

The right hand joystick was not visualizing the surrounding areas properly.

My Fix

Following some basic instructions with my son 11 years old who actually repaired his PS Vita as l instructed him it was a cinch.

My Advice

All it is, is patience and appreciation for what you have.

My Problem

Screen would light up momentarily at startup and then backlight would go out

My Fix

Took a shortcut and just removed the monitor bezel , three screws, and the plastic cover over the inverter. Replaced the inverter, refitted the cable and closed it back up. Took less than 10 minutes.

My Advice

No need to take the whole machine apart, especially with a laptop this old. The risk off cosmetic blemishes was worth the shortened repair time (although I was able to do without any blemishes).

My Problem

The battery on the nexus 5 was absolutely awful. I figured getting a new one would fix this.

My Fix

It generally went very well. I was able to follow the guide step by step with little to no complications.

My Advice

The only improvement to the guide I would make is to be more specific about how many plastic anchors there are on the back of the Nexus 5. There were far more than the guide implicated.

My Problem

The right fan began to "whine" after a 1 inch drop onto a desk. The noise was annoying especially in a quiet room.

My Fix

The repair was easy. I took my time as not to damage the delicate connectors. In all it took about 25 minutes. I followed the instructions on Ifixit and the repair went fine.

My Advice

My Mac Book Pro is up and running again although the fan I replaced does make some noise as compared to the Apple OEM left fan. It is not noticeable unless you hold your ear to it. Be careful not to strip the small case screws and be very gentle with the Airport antenna connectors as well as the fan power cable connector.

My Problem

My phone was having trouble charging. Had to hold cable "just right".

My Fix

Everything went well with the repair and my phone was fully functional afterwards. However the next day my touch ID stopped working and I haven't been able to figure out why. Not sure if it is related to the repair. Anyway, my phone now charges correctly.

My Advice

Take it slow. Make sure you have something to hold the screws and small parts with. I used a piece of packing tape attached to a paper plate.

My Problem

the sound on my beloved 2011 macbook air stopped working (my fault, i think it happened when i kept hotplugging in my hdmi cable). It was very frustrating to gave no sound coming out of the mac. I could have taken it to the apple store, but decided to have a go repairing it myself! It might be cheaper plys i would learn some new skills and it would be more fun! I took a chance on it and bought the necessary tools from ifixit!

My Fix

it went spectacularly well! The toolkit from ifixit was so great and just perfect for the job! The online guide was clear and concise and easy to follow. It didnt take long at all. Plus it was so much fun opening up my mac and seeing what was inside! Thank you ifixit!

My Advice

all i can say is i am glad i decided to try repairing my mac myself. I feel so much better having repaired it myself and had a good time doing it!
