My Problem

Superdrive was acting up. I ordered a replacement from ifixit. Within a few days my order arrived. Installation took about 30 minutes, and the replacement worked perfectly.

My Fix

Easy...thanks to the detailed guide on ifixit.

My Advice

Just follow the directions. Keep all your screws organized and in order. There are several different sizes of screws that require removal. When you take the screws out, situate them so you know how they go back in.

My Problem

My wife's MacBook Pro optical drive was spinning but it wouldn't read anything. Since I do Technology Support for our school district I had taken apart MacBook Pros before, but had never replaced an optical drive before.

My Fix

With the fabulous instructions on iFixit. com it was VERY easy. Put it back together and it works perfectly !

My Advice

You may not have to take the "subwoofer" and Airport card completely out if you take out their screws and slide them over to get to the drive's screw underneath.

My Problem

The trackpad on my wife's mid 09 MBP was not recognizing the physical click, for almost two years. The optical drive was also not functioning for over a year. We have three kids and they sometimes move faster than we can take things away from them.

My Fix

Due to the step by step guides the repair was easy peasy. It went just like the guides said.

My Advice

The only surprise was the torque screw under the trackpad. There was no mention of this in the guide and the trackpad came with a new one (didn't use). Because it seemed to be just a screw and the new trackpad worked fine with the old screw, I just left the old one in there.

My Problem

DVD quit...hard drive way too small!!!!

Friend was afraid to dig in...So I jumped in...

My Fix

Remove the screws...pull it apart...put it back together...wala!!!

All works like a champ!!!

My Advice

Go slow and don't over tighten anything...snug is cool.

My Problem

Unibody 8x SATA SuperDrive had expired and needed replacing.

My Fix

Went smoothly.

My Advice

Use pencil marks to mark where long screws go when removing bottom of laptop. They easily wipe off when done.

My Problem

Dead Superdrive

My Fix

Just fine!

Ordered the drive on a monday at eleven am. Got the Fedex package at eleven Wednesday. And I live in Stockholm, Sweden.

My Advice

Simple repair. And You don't have to take the battery out so You don't need the pentalobe tool.
