What screwdriver to remove battery from T460s

#1 Post by JayNYC » Tue May 15, 2018 2:55 pm

Hi-- embarrassing question. I am trying to replace one of the batteries inside my T460s.
These are the instructions from Lenovo

However, my Phillips head screwdriver is too pointy, so the blades don't grip the screw .

What are the exact specs of screwdriver I need?

thanks

Wiha or Wera tools are excellent.

Here is one supplier.

It's a JIS type S screwdriver, similar to a Phillips, but a little different.

I got a Moody set that works quite well (Moody Stock Number 58-0319)

That's where I shop for electronics tools.

You might get away with a flat-head screwdriver for that, but check that it fits the cross slot precisely before applying any torque.

Same set, but a fair bit cheaper: https://www.ebay.com/itm/182387909312

very very helpful. I never knew screwdrivers had such a rich specification matrix. Learning even more via this excellent forum!

The same goes for gunsmithing screwdrivers too. They are very precise to fit certain screws.
