SNO+ is a multipurpose neutrino detector located at SNOLAB in Sudbury, Ontario. As the successor to the SNO experiment, SNO+ inherited the detector hardware, including about 10000 photomultiplier tubes (PMTs). Over the lifetime of SNO approximately 8% of the PMTs experienced a failure in the base electronics. Because these PMTs represent a non-trivial gain in light collection, a repair procedure was developed at Queen's University. The repair work is now continuing at Laurentian University. This poster will describe the motivation and repair process in detail.
