I have a stripped screw in my case that I'd like to get out (bought the 8700c used). It's one of the 4 inside the BB that you get to after removing the outter back. If the thing is facing screen down, it's the lower left screw (middle of the body).

I was thinking of some kind of glue to glue a paper clip to it or something, but doubt I'd be able to torque it at all.

I'd love some tips, if someone has any.

If itís a torx head try using the next size up. We do this all the time for phone repairs. The only bad thing is u need to get replacement screws for it. I have tons but not sure if there the same for 8700's....
