    Hi all,

    So I took apart my MBP long ago to replace the optical drive, and when I went to put it back together, I had a brain fart and mistook the DVI monitor jack nuts for MBP screw holes. it's been stuck there for maybe 2 years now, and I thought maybe I could go on here to see if anyone has ever had this happen.

    How do you think I could remove the screw? The back of the nuts are closed, so it has to be done externally. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Is it actually screwed in? Or is it more or less just sitting in there? If it's the latter, try some super glue on the end of a screw driver. Not too much because you don't want the glue sticking to the inside of the connector, just enough to bind the tip of the screwdriver to the screw.

    Right On

    YES! Your idea worked perfectly, thank you! I would have never thought of that, it just slipped right out. Sweeet. :D
