Magesafe connection was fried and would not charge.
Didn't work, but ifixit.com was a great site and had very detailed instructions on how to do the repair. The repair was a long-shot anyway. I wouldn't have even attempted it had I not found this site complete with instructions, suggested tools (for sale too) and user comments on similar repairs. Thanks for making it so easy!
Read everything carefully. Notes are very detailed, take advantage of the advise.
