After Closing the MacBook with a pen still on the keyboard, I found it necessary to replace the LCD screen.
I changed a LCD screen before on a Dell laptop, but, this was far more complicated. It took me by surprise how much disassembly was required. I followed the instructions exactly and the whole process went smoothly. It took me one hour and forty five minutes from start to finish.
I used a seven day pill box (free at local pharmacy) to separate all the screws that were removed in the process. At each step, I placed the screws in a different compartment. It made it easier to find them during reassembly.

My mac screen broke. I wanted to use my mac.
Easy as pie. The repair was listed as "extremely difficult, it took me five minutes.
If your screen is broken, order the correct screen. My experience with iFixit was good, so I'd order from here again.

A sharp object collided with our screen at an accelerated rate, causing a cracking/shatte
The first estimate of repair at an undisclosed store was $1,200, then at another undisclosed store $460, and thankfully to ifixit the final cost was only $250.
The repair went great! I have little to no electronic experience or tools but a willing friend came over and the two of us went step by step through the ifixit guide. It was a seamless procedure with clear confidence inspiring instructions.
You can do it! and ifixit can help!
*a second fully operational computer is helpful to view ifixit guides during the repair

the display screen of macbookpro was showing a rainbow of colors when turned on. One corner would flash boxes constantly while booting up.
Repair was flawless. There were a few stubborn connections that needed to be removed with lots of patience.
Breathe in deeply and out counting to 10 before continuing any parts removal on laptops.

I inadvertently closed the monitor while an earphone was placed on the speaker. Since I was already placing an order, I upgraded RAM and placed in a brand new battery (mine after 4 years of misuse was just... gone)
It took me less than two hours, and using your step-by-step guides made it plain simple. I just had to keep the removed screws lined up one next to each other, so to have them sorted correctly when I re-assembled it later.
Yes... Reward yourself with a beer when the repair is done! :-P

I tripped in the terminal at Detroit Metro Airport, fell and landed on my Macbook, cracking the LCD screen. Apple wanted $1200 to fix it!?
The repair went flawlessly. The instructions are phenominally detailed. The tools I ordered for assembly made the process easier than I expected.
The one key is to be VERY organized with the parts you take off. Have a container for each set of screws you take off and keep the containers lined up in the order you took them off.

I dropped my computer and cracked the LCD screen.
using the guide on iFixit, my friend and I spent the afternoon in the basement of our favorite coffee shop with an allan wrench, tiny screw driver set and a paint scrapper replacing the screen.
The most tricky/difficul
Reconnecting the isight wire was also tough (it kept falling back out.)
Also connect your wires and test everything first before putting ALL of your screws back in, just in case you missed a wire.

The LCD screen was only useful on the right half. The left half was damaged. I went to the Apple store and they had no stock to repair and would replace with a similar computer for $1200. After two other web stores were out of stock with little hope of getting new stock in, I bought a replacement LCD screen for my powerbook pro from iFixit.
The replacement took 2-3 hours. It went slowly because of the delicate nature of many parts. The reassembly was much faster than disassembly. The directions on the iFixit web site were clear but had to be read carefully. When turned back on the familiar apple startup screen came up immediately proving the screen was functional.
Separate screws as you go. I used 5 containers that held the screws in the order of removal. Do the work in a location were the very small screws can be easily found if dropped. Read directions carefully and go slowly.
