    I am trying to disassemble my daughters Moto G4 to replace the glass, I have taken phones etc apart and repaired them before so I thought this would be a cinch.

    Well it seems like to the naked eye there was nothing wrong with my Draper T4 driver so I tried undoing the many screws (think its 18) but I only managed to get four undone and one closer inspection I may have damaged the heads on quite a few while trying.

    Using a magnifying glass I can see that the T4 driver is worn.

    So I'd really like to get a new driver today if possible but places like tool station only sell packs and I already have a 9pce set so I just want to get a T3 if possible.

    Any ideas where I might be able to get a decent driver on the high street?

    Hmm looks like it might be a T3 that's required, teach me not to just blindly trust a you tube tear down video.

    Torx 4 is a bit small for most stores, may get lucky if you have an RC model shop locally. If not itll be a toolshop for a kit

    Top right corner of the first post, there's a Thread Options drop down or something. Edit Title is in there.

    Try eBay. But when tightening them back up, try not to use too much....torx.

    Ok I'm done now.

    There are Torx T3s being sold singly on Amazon, from a few pounds up to a Wiha for £20.
