no more dust bunnies

Sylvester McMonkey -

Mein Problem

I had Apple replace my hard disk (under AppleCare) but they left two microscopic pieces of dust behind the glass. I could have brought it back to them but rather than spend an entire day driving back and forth to the Apple Store I decided to fix it myself.

Meine Reparatur

Removing the glass is super easy with the Heavy-Duty Suction Cups. I had a helper ready to hold the patient down but you could probably remove the glass without help.

Mein Rat

Reassembling an iMac while keeping dust out from behind the glass is very difficult. I used a can of compressed air but the dust just wanted to settle somewhere else. If you want to do this routinely I suggest shaving your head and the use of Tyvek jumpsuits. Maybe convert that unused bedroom to a "clean room" for Mac repair too. No home should be without one!
