Opening up the Portable Macintosh's Power Adapter (M5136)

Recommended Posts

I can't find a way to open up the power adapter for the portable Macintosh (M5136). I am wondering if anybody has any advice for me? There is literally nothing on the internet for opening the adapter since the common answer is to replace it. Not wanting to replace it, just fix it. 

 

I included a picture of what the adapter looks like to help jog peoples memories :)

 

Help!

I feared this. Having a heck of a time trying to do this and not make a mess. Do you have any tips on softening the glue? I've been using some isopropanol, however it's not helping much.

 

Thank you for responding!

The glue probably cyanoacrylate (super glue) or something similar.

It, along with the plastic is pretty brittle.

Here's a vid that shows one method.

Sorry haven't time to look, but another member posted a method on here for cracking open 1x0 power adaptors using pencils and a vice - I've tried and this worked well.
