Does anybody know how to get stripped Pentalobe screws out?

I was replacing the battery when I over-tightened one of the Pentalobe screws on the outside. I stripped it. Now, I can’t get into the computer to do any other repairs. Let me know if anybody has any methods to remove stripped screws without damaging the laptop, and if anybody knows a site where I can buy a replacement screw.

Edit: The screw head is stripped but not the threads. I can’t unscrew it and I can’t pop it out.

Remove all the other P5 screws. now you should be able to lift the cover enough to pop the screw out.

The threads are not stripped, but the screw head is. I can't pop it out but I can't unscrew it either.


@chanute You have to cut a notch in it and use a flathead. I do this with a type of Dremel tool with a cut off disk attached. The disk is round, so if you are careful all you will cut is the screw since it is recessed.
