Question Bold Disassembly Tools - Where to buy in person?

Please Login to Remove!

I received a replacement bezel sans tools. I know that I can pick up a torx screwdriver at Lowes but what about the widget or suitable alternative? Are pointed tweezers an absolute must or can you get away with a small blade screw driver?

Any help would be appreciated! I will NOT wait for an on-line order!

Thanks guys!

I am sure you can get away with a small blade driver.

Another fitting suggestion that I had considered. And considering I might have to use that card to purchase a new one if I screw it up I think it will be perfect! lol!

Thanks Dwhatfield!

All you really need is the #5 Torqx driver. On all of my devices the black midplate was basically pull-able from the device. If for some reason it isn't a credit card will definitely work. And as previously suggested a very tiny flat-head will help as well, but that's more or less only needed for the TB assembly latches.
