i know what you mean and i see the problem when i look at the teardown of the 27" imac

the audio jack isn't part of the logicboard - it's a plastic bracket that will become loose by only thinking of it ;-)

you can see the L shaped part in the middle of the picture

the bad part is, there is no guide for that part - but you can use any other guide to open the imac, getting to the part should not be the biggest problem - since you know where is hast to be ;-)

good luck

I can se many L shaped parts:) not possible to ring it in? well anyway thank u for the answer. I will also mention that i've had it in for this problem before and i think that it where temporay fixed that time and i really don't want to send it in again but i you have to open it i'm not sure anymore if i wanna try this my self.

Then if u look at it u can se traces of a tool around the jacket on the chassi it self so isn't there a tool i can use without have to open the mac?


i edited a picture of the part in my post above. i don't think that you could easily use a "tool" to get this part into the right position. opening the imac with suction cups should leave no marks at all. i recommend a extension cable for the audio jack after you fixed it

`You can replace the audio jacks yourself pretty easily. There are good instructions on this page: iMac Intel 21.5" EMC 2428 Audio Ports Replacement

Took me 50 minutes, but I dropped on of the audio jack screws into the cooling fan and had to remove it to recover the screw.

The headphone jack of my 2017 iMac 27” got loose and pushed in too deep. After my initial panic, the fix was easy:

  • Use a screw just big enough to get hold of the jack to pull it back into position. The Bic pen trick didn’t do it for me. Be careful not to damage the contacts (I don’t know how though).
  • Put a *tiny* drop of super glue between the back of the housing of the computer and the jack.

Initially the right channel was only connecting if I pulled down the headphone jack, so I put a tiny piece of paper underneath it. Now it’s working fine.

I put a 10 cm extension cable between my headphones and iMac, so I don’t have to put the iMac’s jack under any more stress and risk getting it loose again. Now I only need to find a way to play music through the speakers while that extension cable is plugged in.

Same problem here on an iMac (late 2012). Last week the headphone jack occasionally popped out the socket. Then one day it just cracked and was pushed inwards.

Went to a Apple retailer and they said I could return it to an Apple store. When it's proven it's not because of bad use (I switch between speakers and headphone once a day max, so it's not) they can fix it within 2,5 weeks for free (within 2 years European warranty). I think I just buy a new external sound card which I was already planning to do.

If anyone succeeds in fixing this I would like to hear. Maybe I give it a try.
