    Following the MCE optibay alternative thread, I'm trying to remove my superdrive from my MBP. The trouble being, one of the screws at the front of the MBP holding the drive in place is smaller than the others. It's a cross head (phillips) screw.

    I've searched around the net, checked eBay, asked at my local computer repair store - no one seems to know / list a screwdriver smaller than a PH000, part of the 33 piece kit I already have.

    A picture can be seen here of the offending screw (wider view).

    Have any MBP SR owners replaced their superdrive to either upgrade it or fit an OBHC?

    This page refers to the screw being 3.3mm - maybe mine is a one off?

    Still haven't found phillips screw drivers smaller than PH000. Will try a flathead to undo these screws at the weekend. Have my OBHC through now from Newmode US.
