hi guys, today I entered a new case of this disk that emits noises inside, from noise and clicks I think to the head. The disk has the following data plate: code: yar41bw0 n, m, c, d
s.n y325yj0e
6y080l0032013
made in singapore 12 aug 2003
Is it possible to get advice on how to identify a head donor?
I had found this product in September 2003 according to you it is possible to use the heads?

Does it produce head clicking sounds or a kind of melody?

The real problem is finding an identical unit, I tried on ebay looking at over 200 units image after image. I found only units with 6y08l04 and not 003 it almost seems that Maxtor has only built this one that I have LOL, how do you do in these cases? Do you pray to the god of hard disks? : -}

Most likely it will not work as well but if you can't find any other donor i guess you can try it out ....

Hi Magnetepazzoo, was your head swap on Maxtor succsessful? I am up for platter-move (stuck rotor) on similar 160gb drive (was sitting for 10 years) and was looking for tips.

What is the full model of your drive ? Can you post a picture of the label ?

Did you open the drive already ? Did you open it inside a HEPA 100 aseptic room ?

Are you sure the problem is spindle related ?

I've done open surgery before, but on single-platter 2.5" IBM drive, not on multi-platter/Maxtor, hence question on any pointers on this drive.
Code: YAR41BW0 N,M,C,D
SN: Y41FQ98E
6Y160P0041201
Yes, I opened it to inspect, and though not in cert. clean room.
I have exact donor (actually 2).

Thanks!

Platter by platter move will not work. You have to unstuck rotor or remove all platters with spindle assembled and put it to donor. It is only possible way as I remember.

Have had varying levels of success with unsticking motor by force, but it’s worth a shot IMHO.

there is a way how to do it platter by platter but you need to know some tricks how to do it. I am not sure if those tricks were in public.

(Maxtor 6Y160P0041201 with stuck motor)
I was going to use platter-stack compression removal. Rather than buying, can someone borrow/lease compression tool?
