Booked a Genius Bar appointment and they got them out and replaced them for free out of warranty and out of Apple care.

If you or a friend have available one of those rotary tools such as a dremel or the likes you can use a round shaped thin cutting tool to create a slot on the screws head and use a flat head driver to get rid of the stripped screws. You have to have a steady hand but with some care you should manage. That's my favorite way to win smaller stripped screws.

I do and would do that, however I would end up cutting the unibody


You could try using a jewelers hand drill with a left hand drill. going slow and easy pop the head of the screw off then use a good jewelers gripping plier slowly twist the shaft off. Often times just the act of drilling will loosen the screw.


I have just booked it in to apple and I have to prove that I did not damage them cos this happened after i replaced the screen by apple. I will just say that there is so much dust inside how could I have ever opened it.


Apple fixed it today at no charge, changed all the screws over and got the stripped ones out.
