    I would like the upgrade the hard drive in my mid-2009 MacBook Pro 13". Where can I buy the required screwdriver within the UK?

    Thanks,

    Your local hardware store :confused: If I'm not mistaken it's a standard torx screw...

    I bought one of these from Maplins when I swapped the hard drive in my MBP.

    "Torx" not "torch." You need a T6, I believe.

    Personally I found the T6 too large, think I used a T5 instead. Regardless, you may as well buy a full set of Torx screwdrivers, it isn't going to cost much more than a single one.

    I paid £6 for a T4-T10, T15, T20 set from my local hardware store.

    You'll need Phillips 00 and Torx t6 to remove the drive.
