    Hey,

    I have a problem which I couldn't solve for quite a while now...

    I bought a new WD Scorpio Blue 500 GB for my uMBP 13. I can't, however, figure out which screwdriver I need for those mounting screws that have to be removed in order to change the drives.

    I first bought a Torx 6 (Black & Decker TX 6) which is too big. I then ordered both a Torx 4 and Torx 5 from eBay. They are both too small... So what is wrong here?

    Anyone had the same problem? Or any alternative solutions w/o using a Torx driver?

    I'd really appreciate any help.

    Basti.

    One of the three should fit... :confused: I think the screw in question is a T5. However, if the screw isn't too tight, I've had some success using hex keys to loosen Torx screws as well.

    Hmm, so could it be that I got the wrong Torx from ebay? It says Torx 5 but it is too small for the screw!?!
