Opening kit is different on US and EU site


Been trying to find the answer to this but not having much luck.

I have the iMac 21.5 2017 and I need to buy the opening kit. On your US site, the part number is IF173-005-1 and the US website tells me that the kit is available direct from the UK (which is where I am), so I go to the EU site and the details for the kit are different, it says it is for the iMac 21.5 2012-2015 and the part number is very similar, but not formatted the same - EU173005-1.

Could someone please tell me if the kit on the EU site is just listed wrongly, or is it an older version and not suitable for the iMac 21.5 2017 model?

Thanks for any help :D

Or alternatively, does anyone know the best way to contact ifixit EU? I emailed last week but no reply. Cheers.

Hi Dave, check spam folder. They answered me in 24h. Rewrite them, they may be busy


Thanks Oscar, I've sent it twice, once last week,left a message on facebook. Seems they are difficult to get hold of! I've sent again today, but was hoping to get this done this weekend, but we'll see. Thanks.


@monkeychops - Hi Dave, You might want to just post an email I'm not sure if they monitor the Facebook that heavily.
