    I purchased the precision screw extractor kit from iFixit
    But i just cannot figure out how to use it. I've searched around with no answers and i'm not really sure what size extractor to use.

    You literally just try a bit that fits the kind of screw you have stripped and press down firmly and twist if you have the right size it should come right out

    Thanks Cowboy. Took me awhile to realize that and I tried it several times but i think the screw is now too stripped for removal with the extractor.

    Think outside the box. You stripped a (very small) phillips head screw, right?
    The easy way is to take a FLAT tip screwdriver and a fingernail file, file it down till is is just a little too big, put it in so it catches on one small part, and turn. Other option is get a very small drill bit (dremmel) and drill it out. Be careful though!
    Which screw is it?
