M1 Macbook Air DIY repair

I'm replacing the USB card in my M1 MBA (see [])

And of course, I just discovered that Apple has changed the screws again. The case screws are now P5 Pentalobs and the internal went down to T3 torx. I discovered the case change when I stripped out the head of one screw thinking it was just overtight - joy. I have several sets of screwdrivers for this fine work, but of course no P5 and my Torx's stark at T5.

So for all you DIY'ers, be aware that Apple is doing Apple.

I have T5, and it is so small. I also have Pentalob P5.

I cannot imagine how small a T3 must be.
