Hi All

I hope i'm in the right places for this

I want to get a head tool for my wd 10jpvx

But I do not know how many heads (think that is the right term) i have to get the correct head tool

I do not want to dismantle it untill i have every thing I want.

I have got another drive from the net to get the head out of with the same modle number but not the correct date 9 months differnet

So how do I get the info from and where to get the head tool

Thanking you

This wont end well - kitchen table head swaps are rarely successful.

Enter the full model number here https://apextoollab.com/search/ and it will suggest the correct head comb. Honestly you'd do better sending it to someone with experience.

That's an FBlite -- it's got 4 heads.
Not all of them are compatible with each other, though.

And, I totally agree with Lardman. You might have a clean work area for HDDs, but do you know how to use it? No offense -- but questions like yours usually come from inexperienced users who're trying to cut corners and save some quid --- and more often than not, it doesn't end well and they end up paying much more or have to break the bad news to their 'friend who owns the drive' (who ends up being a client) that the data is gone forever.

This might not be the case with you, but we see it every day nowadays unfortunately.

Good luck.
