    Yeah I wish I would've read this before I replaced mine. Those tiny screws/posts to hold the drive on it's cage.

    I remember someone posting here that a friend of his replaced his HDD, and he noticed that it was flapping around inside. The guy that replaced it probably didn't have a T6 torx and put the drive without those screws. :p

    On a different note, I'm shocked to see apple use 00 Phillips screws to mount the base to the unibody of the macbook pro... they should really standardise them all to torx considering how small they are - it's so easy to break the phillips heads if you apply just a little too much torque.

    I used a tiny standard screwdriver from an old eye glass kid I found laying around, lol. I didn't have a problem unscrewing/screwing the screws in.
