Would you explain and identify a component on the logic board?


I tried to replace my girlfriends macbook keyboard after a meeting with lemonade and knocked off a small component...

I dont know how to identify it and if she can use it without it.

Here on this island there arent company's who can fix this really and mostly break more than fixing it. Could it be fixed with some glue or something?

Piet, that is reference designator C6880 which is a 10UF 20% 6.3V X5R 603 capacitor and is listed as critical on the schematic. This means there is no way you can do without. It is part of the "AUDIO: JACK TRANSLATORS" circuitry. It is an inexpensive, widely available part ( from here for example) I suggest to spend the few $ and replace the capacitor. Hope this helps, good luck.
