Where is the bluetooth card?

I've read through the teardown and the repair manuals of the MacBook Unibody but nowhere can I see a reference to the bluetooth card.

The card on our late 2008 MacBook unibody (Alum) is not functioning, but to replace it, I've got to find it first!!!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I found the location-- its part of the display assembly with the airport card and the isight camera. I have not however been able to locate it on the teardown. I am including the link for a display unit but if it were me and that was all that's wrong I'd get a inexpensive bluetooth dongle for a USB port. Good luck whatever you decide Ralph

Out of curiosity, is the isight working OK? Both the bluetooth and the isight share the same cable from the logic board to the top edge of the display assembly under the glass.

If the isight is also not working then it is more likely to be a problem with the cable.

In the best of all worlds the cable can sometimes come unseated in the logic board and can simply be reseated.
