Which are the damage parts of my Mac

History

Just a few days ago my sister spilled a tea drink on my MacBook Air 11" Late 2010, I don´t know how to identify which are the parts that I need to replace, or if it's better to sell the parts of it, what can I do?. After she spilled this liquid the computer worked like one complete week with no issues, then one day it didn't turn on anymore.

Take it apart and clean the computer and work from there

To do this, you need a pentelobe screwdriver for the screws on the case of the laptop and T5 torx

Clean everything in isapropal alcohol and soak all the parts in it for 24 hours, let it all dry and reassess the situation with a new battery installed, the old one may have shorted

Here are the guides, don't soak the fan, display assembly or keyboard/palmrest assembly, but the other parts have to be soaked to avoid further issues

Take it apart and look for the LSI (liquid submersion indicators. They are white dots and turn red when exposed to liquid. If you're lucky, it didn't get to the logic board and all you will need to do is replace the upper case.
