My Problem

old battery wouldn't hold a charge and eventually swelled

My Fix

repair went fast and easy and allowed me to avoid the hassle of the Apple store.

My Advice

replace it yourself despite that Apple says you must take it to them.

My Problem

The battery in my late 2011 unibody MacBook Pro was failing.

My Fix

The repair went great. I watched the video on the ifixit site and ordered all the suggested tools and the battery. When it all arrived, I jumped right in. The video was so well done that I didn't even need to revisit it. If I had not followed your directions, I never would have ordered the Spudger or Tri-wing screwdriver, which it turns out, were fairly essential.

My Advice

Fix it if you can. A battery in a laptop is a pretty non-threatening repair and a good time to clean out the vents and inside of your laptop shell.

My Problem

Ma batterie était en fin de vie, impossible d'utiliser mon mac sans qu'il soit branché. J'ai donc choisi de commander une nouvelle batterie sur Ifixit et j'en ai profité pour augmenter un petit peu ma mémoire RAM

My Fix

J'ai suivi les guides de Ifixit et tout s'est très bien passé, j'ai effectué les changements en 20 minutes.

My Advice

Les guides sont très complet et je ne pense pas pouvoir donner de conseils suplémentaires

My Problem

The battery on my mid-2009 MacBook Pro was well past needing to be replaced. It was only holding enough of a charge for 1\2 hour if that much.

My Fix

The replacement took me only about 10 mins since I had been "under the hood" of my laptop on several other occasions regarding upgrades.

My Advice

This is not a difficult replacement for most folks if they have done any upgrades before. There are 10 screws on the bottom cover of the laptop and care needs to be taken to ensure they go back in the same way they came out using whatever method(s) work best for you. The only screws holding the battery in have a tri-wing, or tri-star, pattern and using the Tri-wing Y1 Screwdriver offered through iFixit is a must to ensure you can easily and correctly remove and replace battery. After removing screws a simple unclipping the ribbon cable connecting the battery to the logic board and lifting battery out is all it takes. Installation is in reverse. Work carefully and methodically and all will be fine.

My Problem

Original battery was dying; only 3 minutes of power remaining even after full charge.

My Fix

It went well! And the video guide was great. Got it done all within 15 minutes with the right tools. I'm happy. So's my wife; it's her MBP :)

My Advice

Nothing more to add, really. I suppose I could add this advice: do remember to clean out the dust accumulated inside, especially around the cooling fan. Just some light dusting will do. That's all.

My Problem

My 5 year old MBP battery went from "good" to "needs service" to "replace soon". I can only imagine what the next warning would have been... When doing my research, I saw that apple claimed the battery had to be replaced by a trained tech. At first, I thought it must be legit. But that was before I saw your youtube video and gained the unyielding confidence to do it on my own.

My Fix

Possibly the easiest computer repair ever completed by mankind that didn't involve duct tape.

My Advice

Don't be afraid and question everything Apple says about DIY repairs.. Thanks ifixit!

My Problem

My battery was no longer holding a charge.

My Fix

SUPER EASY FIX. Assuming you and work a screwdriver and have the two types needed to do the job, this is as simple as it gets. The small screws on the outside of the MBP that hold the bottom case on can easily be purchased at a hardware store. HOWEVER, there are two internal Y-screws that Apple really doesn't want you to easily be able to remove. iFixit sells a fix for that though. The job was done in less than 10-minutes and my computer now holds a charge like it did when I first turned it on in the Apple store!

My Advice

But the Y-screwdriver with the battery from iFixit. You'll absolutely need it. And just be careful not to lose any of the 10 tiny screws that hold the back plate on your MBP. I didn't have a problem...but those suckers could be hard to find if dropped.

My Problem

My Macbook Pro Mid2010 model had a batter yon the verge of dying.

My Fix

It was a little scary, but it went pretty smoothly. It took about five minutes.

My Advice

I was surprised by the amount of debris and dust that had found its way into the unibody. I'd suggest having a can of air dust handy.

My Problem

The battery was swollen and wouldn't let track pad work properly. The track pad wouldn't click on the left side and was hard to click on the right side.

My Fix

Easy peasy! I followed the instructions on the guide without a single problem.

My Advice

If your track pad becomes hard to click, it may be a swollen battery. Replacing it is easy, no need to go to the apple store. Just follow the ifixit guide.

My Problem

After 4 years and 250+cycles, my original battery was on its last legs. I took it to the Apple store, where I was told that they would NOT replace the battery (for $130) because there was evidence that there had been a liquid spill into the unibody -- but they WOULD be happy to charge me $700 to clean everything out, bring the parts back to 2009 spec and replace the battery...

My Fix

Smooth as silk. Took less than 30 minutes, and cost $50 less than having Apple do it -- if they WOULD do it (which they wouldn't).

Happy camper.

My Advice

Follow the instructions, and all will be well.
