Stories

My Problem

The bottom of the case was dented several times. Since my mid 2009 13" MBPro was beginning to have problems I was wondering if the dents had caused problems by putting pressure where it shouldn't.

My Fix

The bottom case is easy to replace. You probably don't need to use an ifixit guide either.

My Advice

If you're going to attempt this fix, it's best to make sure the screws go back in the same place/location they came from originally. Some screws are short and some are very long. These are probably not arbitrary by design and have to do with how long or how far away the receiving end of the screw holders are.
