My Problem

Battery was starting to bulge and the adapter stopped working due to fray.

My Fix

Very quick to change. Also purchased a Fray Fix to hopefully extend the life from this adapter.

My Advice

My Problem

Increased the memory and replaced battery. Not able to find parts at the Apple store

My Fix

Perfect. The repair guide was really helpful

My Advice

No

My Problem

Battery was dying, computer was slow. Don't have the money to get a new one just now.

My Fix

Easy with the guides, very quick.

The battery is not exactly the same color of white plastic as my computer, but it's all right, it's an old model A1181.

My Advice

none

My Problem

Old battery had finally died so decided to replace and while we were at it, doubled the Ram.

My Fix

Smoothly.

My Advice

Laptop works like new, upgraded OS, etc. would recommend to anybody. Thanks

My Problem

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.

My Fix

Easy fix--just removed the old battery, and slipped in the new. Took less than a minute, start to finish.

My Advice

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!

My Problem

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.

My Fix

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!!!

My Advice

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

My Problem

My Macbook battery had been dead for a while. I finally broke down and purchased a new one. The swap was uber simple.

My Fix

Out with the old, in with the new!

My Advice

Order from ifixit... their customer service is by far the best.

My Problem

Battery was old, not holding charge anymore

My Fix

Easy, not really a repair, just changing batteries..

My Advice

Have a coin with you

My Problem

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.

My Fix

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.

My Advice

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.
