Stripped screw on WIFI card


I'm trying to get a1286 laptop screen off my old top case as I want to use it on another system as it's a mint condition 2011 anti glare screen, but one of the screws is stripped, what method should I use to take it out?

I've tried larger screwdriver and glue but not working

You need a jeweller's screw extractor. Look for for a jeweller's tool supply firm. You will need to look around a bit for it as they are much smaller than the ones you normally find at machine shops.

You will want the type that requires drilling a pilot hole first. They are conical in shape with steep spiral cutting edges that cut into the screw in the pilot hole turning counter clock-wise to unscrew it. Read up on the technique as much as you can before actually doing anything, to avoid a disaster.

The most common cause of stripped screw heads is insufficient pressure on the screw driver that then allows it to slip on the screw head.

Good luck.

Is this the good system or the one you want to remove the display from?

If its the one you don't care I would just cut off the plastic around it to get the bracket off. If this is the good one I would still cut it off and then trim away the plastic to expose more of the screw so you can get a pair of pliers on it AFTER you've taking the screen away.

Sorry for late reply (I was asleep), I have screw pliers which work very well (Used on another Macbook), How would I cut the plastic? (What tool?)

Also the system is 2.2 Ghz Early 2011 with a good condition top case and mint anti glare screen, I'm planning on using dosdude to disable the gpu and use it as portable laptop


@amazedllama - I'm a bit confused here, you can't use the system without a display if that is what you are thinking.

I just use a dremel tool and/or a knife to cut the plastic away


Sorry for late reply, I'm planning on swapping the top case because of the dents and scratches, I started to swap parts into the clean one I have, I now need to get the Display out but the wifi card is stopping me from doing so
