I have a hard drive that I currently believe has a problem with the Read/Write headers. I understand the risks involved and do not possess a class 100 clean room, nor any clean room at all for that matter. I understand the problem with getting even a micron of dust on something revolving at 7200RPM. I have several hard drives I am testing this process on first before attempting the actual hard drive.


Now my question: Is it necessary to receive a nearly identical replacement header for this hard drive, as is the case for the logic board?
