The battery on my MacBook was bulging which was putting pressure on the trackpad, causing it to "stick." It eventually got so bad that it was impossible to use. Very annoying.
Easy fix--just removed the old battery, and slipped in the new. Took less than a minute, start to finish.
This was an incredibly easy fix. My MacBook is getting a little old ('08 model) but it still serves my purposes so it was worth the cost of a new battery. Couldn't find a better price anywhere, and the repair guides were clear and helpful. I only wish I had done this sooner!

The airport card didn't work fine. After years of use the wireless connection was impossible and i could go in internet only with the ethernet cable. Also the battery, after years of use didn't keep the power, i could use the macbook only with the power cable connected.
All fine! Very simple find the right component with my model.
I picked up the most recent compatible airport card and watching the manual was very easy to install it. All fine and now my macbook is as new!!!
The only advice is to store the screws not all togheter because they are all similar and is not easy to place them into the right place if not stored separately step by step

The battery was bulging slightly, warping the bottom of the laptop. I found several references to this in Mac forums as a symptom of an aging battery. I noticed that it was difficult to get the MagSafe power adapter to recharge the battery sometimes: I had to keep reseating the adapter until the light started glowing. I thought replacing the battery might help with this as well.
There's nothing to it. Shut down the Mac, turn the slot with a coin, pop out the old battery, slip in the new one, and charge it up overnight.
Replacing the battery did not help with the charging issue. (I still think it is worth it to have a healthy battery that holds a charge longer.) I discovered that the MagSafe adapter port on the side of the MacBook had attracted a used staple that was hiding in one corner. Of course this made it harder to get the adapter to sit properly. Once I realized it was there, it was easy to remove. The adapter is still finicky. When I borrow a newer adapter the problem seems to go away.

I was forced to as one laptop would freeze and when it did work, it could not recognize USB ports due to lack of power.
On laptop #2, it was the battery that seemed to be growing. I have heard of swollen batteries and decided to get a new battery.
So fix it or loose it!
Easily. The first check is always the wires...clearly
Laptop #2 was swollen and all I needed was a coin to open and replace the battery.
BOTH LAPTOPS ARE HAPPILY WORKING.
Try it yourself. You might learn something! You can always call in an expert and get your problem fixed...
